The Victoria is an impeccable four-bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home with a storybook setting in London's exclusive Kensington neighborhood. Imagine the very best of London living and it's yours at the Victoria. Walk along a beautiful and quiet residential street lined with pretty front gardens to reach the Victoria, with its classic London wrought iron railing bedecked with wisteria vines.

Set in picturesque Kensington, the neighborhood is said to have been originally built for Queen Victoria's ladies in waiting. Victoria was born and grew up in the nearby Kensington Palace, which was once the home of Lady Diana. We named the Victoria vacation rental after this illustrious heritage. This was home to a famous English painter, Albert Chevallier Tayler, whose cricket painting broke a record selling for over $1m. His portraits of players were the first of their kind and many hang in the National Portrait Gallery.

You're just a short stroll from the gorgeous and expansive Hyde Park in one direction and some of the best museums in London on Museum Row, in the other direction. For those wanting a more guided experience, try one of our expert museum tours. Walk to fabulous shopping along High Street Kensington or stroll to Notting Hill or Harrods in Knightsbridge; read our blog on department store dining for where to eat. The Victoria is very near the Tube and tons of bus lines crisscrossing London.

Step through the front door to find a soaring entry leading to a large and sunny living room, a gorgeous open-plan dining room and gourmet kitchen. The gorgeous outdoor terrace is the perfect setting for a summer evening. On the second floor, you'll find the sumptuous bedroom 1 with large en-suite bathroom. Next door is the quaint bedroom 2, complete with an en suite. One more level up on the third floor you'll find two additional welcoming bedrooms and a separate bathroom. With every comfort of home, your stay at the Victoria will be a highlight of your trip to London. Click here to see why we love Kensington.
