    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

    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
