The Royal Borough of Kensington, with its magnificent Georgian facades, is one of the most sought after residential areas in London. The Adria gives you a pied-à-terre in the neighbourhood, minutes from legendary Harrods, classic culture, museums and royal parks.
Chic shoppers and gastropods are at the right address. Nearby is Knightsbridge home to Harrods, Harvey Nichols and a host of luxury designers. For lunch between shopping there’s the oyster bar at Bibendum, a London dining institution, upstairs showcases the dazzling gastronomy of Claude Bosi. For a Modern British menu in an 1839 townhouse reserve Launceston Place.
Five minutes from The Adria are three magnificent museums on Exhibition Road. Families can spend all day in the Natural History Museum discovering everything you need to know about human evolution, dinosaurs and meteorites. The Science Museum is hands on education and entertainment. The Victoria and Albert Museum is an absolute treasure trove of human creativity from ancient Japanese armour to Alexander McQueen evening dresses.
The Royal Albert Hall is the world-famous host to the Proms classical concerts. Opposite is Kensington Gardens, at the entrance is the shimmering gold Albert Memorial, commissioned by Queen Victoria. The Royal Park is home to the avantgarde Serpentine Gallery, lakes, riding stables and exquisite gardens.
The Adria is an 1870s townhouse, originally a private home in South Kensington, near the Royal Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens.
Families staying at The Adria head straight across the road to London’s three most magnificent museums and the pleasures of Kensington Gardens. For others Harrods and Harvey Nichols are high on the agenda, then it’s back to The Adria for a London gin and tonic, before a concert at the Royal Albert Hall.
