Kensington and Chelsea, which has the official name of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, is a London borough found toward the west of central London. The borough can be found immediately to the west of the City of Westminster and to the east of Hammersmith & Fulham, and includes notable features such as the Harrods, Peter Jones and Harvey Nichols department stores and a number of national embassies.
Covering a total land area of just 4.68 square miles, Kensington and Chelsea is the smallest of London’s boroughs and is in fact the second smallest district in the whole of England, but in spite of this does still contain many of the most expensive residential districts in London and even in the world.
