Lots of shops and restaurants. Kensington is like a little hamlet where you can find unique things to purchase. The restaurants vary in price and food selection. Nice place to spend a few hours at.

Great walking and people watching location. Fascinating pubs-cafes-restaurants- retail shops-and small business offices. Also involves a high-density residential community, which utilizes this district real well! Unfortunately---parking is abysmal! Arrive earl! Or take the transit! Good luck!
