Say what you want about the architecture, but don’t miss the Design Museum. It moved from the South Bank to Kensington, and the gift shop is amazing. It’s filled with artful items you won’t find anywhere else: tile coasters, paper vases, print rugs from Nepal. Lots of limited-edition prints relating to the shows, too. A lot of the museum is free, and the John Pawson-designed building, with its minimal marble and oak interiors, is quite a sight in itself.
Conseils des habitants
If you're looking for a bit of culture - head to the relatively new Design Museum. The building is incredible.
For lovers of contemporary design, this museum is housed in a mid century modern architectural icon, the former Commonwealth Institute. Surrounding Holland Park with its giant chessboard, famous peacocks and Japanese Garden is an understated joy.
They sometimes have very interesting exhibitions as well (like Stanley Kubrick and his creative design process of film making). So worth checking out what's on.
A short walk to the Design Museum at the southern end of Holland Park. “It is a museum of ideas rather than things,” and worth a visit if design is on your list of interests
