By Car:

If you intend to travel to London by car please note that parking can be problematic and expensive. However, metered parking and 24 hour NCP multi-storey parking is available close by.

Once in central London follow signs for Kensington or Knightsbridge. Get onto the A315, Kensington Gore, which runs along the south side of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, which then becomes Kensington Road. If coming from the East you will see the Royal Garden Hotel in front of you and Kensington Palace on your right, turn left into Kensington Court opposite the Palace. If coming from the West via Kensington High Street, just passed the Royal Garden Hotel and Kensington Palace on your left, turn right into Kensington Court. Follow the one-way system all the way round until you reach no. 51.
