Kensington Church Street

If you like peering into interesting shop windows, Kensington Church Street has quite a few of them. I walked down there tonight after work when everything was closed, but took a few poor-quality, through-the-glass photos of a shop I can’t remember the name of (anyone?) that sells amusing chairs.



The street connects Notting Hill Gate to Kensington High Street. On the Notting Hill end, you have the increasingly not-so-useful post office, a Waterstones, dry cleaning, etc. There’s the flower-smothered Churchill Arms pub somewhere in the middle buried in antique shops and little art galleries. There are rare books, crazy lighting shops, cafes, restaurants, hairdressers galore. Once you get further down toward Kensington High Street, the boutiques and jewellery shops start appearing. It even has a pretty, easy-to-miss garden near the church at that end – St. Mary Abbots Gardens.
