The Kensington in the Royal borough of Kensington & Chelsea, offers you a chance to win a luxury weekend escape for two.

The KensingtonThe Kensington

Traditional service and Victorian grandeur come together with sleek style and contemporary comfort at The Kensington. Embrace a sophisticated member’s club vibe, whether over afternoon tea in the light, elegant drawing rooms, cocktails in the glamorous K Bar, or dinner in the refined Town House.

There’s a sense, on being welcomed through the double-framed doors of The Kensington, of stepping back in time to a more genteel, service-oriented age. Certainly, the hotel’s white stucco façade – a collection of four 19th century townhouses with their high ceilings, heritage décor and open fireplaces – evokes something of a bygone era. Yet just as vivid is an immediate sense of vibrant, contemporary confidence that emanates from its stunning contemporary design.

The Kensington is located close to the capital’s most iconic landmarks. These include Kensington Palace, The V&A Museum, Natural History Museum and Hyde Park. For those in search of refined retail therapy, Harrods and Harvey Nichols are just a stroll away in nearby Knightsbridge.

Experience the luxury lifestyle that The Kensington has to offer with our prize of a two-night stay, including à la carte breakfast and two signature cocktails in the K Bar.
