Holland Park is a London anomaly in that the area has no official boundaries. It lies within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Those who live there will tell you that Holland Park is found between Kensington High Street (to the South), Holland Road (to the West), Holland Park Avenue (to the North) and Kensington Church Street (to the East). There’s a 54 acre park of the same name, adding to the confusion, which has an Orangery, an ecology centre and an open-air theatre. Whatever its official status, there’s no denying that it’s an affluent area and there’s a plethora of blue plaques commemorating the great and the good. Local residents currently include the Beckhams, Simon Cowell and Sir Richard Branson. As you might expect, the larger house are hidden behind high walls and imposing gates and hardly visible to those walking by. The side streets, however, are a photographers dream; cosy (but still expensive) cottages with tiny gardens full of rambling roses, independent shops tucked in on the end of a row and hidden corners. My walk began at Holland Park tube station and ended at Notting Hill Gate tube station. The walk took just under an hour.
