Kensington (3), London
These rather striking properties are in Hornton Street which runs south into Kensington High Street.
The Windsor Castle pub, in Campden Hill Road, was built in the 1800s and has remained largely unchanged.
It still features wooden pews and booths which form part of its considerable charm.
Designed in 1839, the Royal Crescent is one of the most architecturally interesting 19th century developments in Holland Park although it is not strictly a true crescent but rather two quadrant terraces each terminated by a circular bow in the Regency style, rising as a tower.
It is interesting to note that it was the need for the newly fashionable underground sewers which caused the crescent to be designed in two halves rather than any consideration for architectural aesthetics.
Holland Park Mews was where the stables and coach houses of the large houses on either side of the mews were situated. The coach houses and stables would have occupied the ground floor whilst the servants quarters were in the upper storeys.
The stables part of the coach houses have mostly now been converted into garages.
