A Quick Overview of South Kensington
South Kensington is in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in London. It is a built-up area 2.4 miles (3.9 km) west- south-west of Charing Cross. It has become the epicentre of the rapidly growing French community in London.
It is hard to define boundaries for South Kensington, but a common definition is the commercial area around the tube station and the adjacent garden squares and streets (such as Thurloe Square, opposite the Victoria and Albert Museum).
