    South Kensington
    With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
    white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
    easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
    superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
    Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
    child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
    mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
    such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
