Perfectly situated in Kensington, the Shelbourne is a bright and spacious one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment overlooking a lovely garden square. Everything about the setting will make you feel right at home in one of London’s most sought-after neighbourhoods. Here in a row of historic terraced homes, which are listed Grade II on the National Heritage List for England, you’ll find the Shelbourne. Inside, the living room has three large windows overlooking the garden below. A dining nook nearby, fully equipped kitchen, and finely finished bathroom complete the comfortable home setting.


The beautiful light continues in the bedroom with its calming muted colours and small staircase leading up to a sunroom. This is a fine spot to enjoy a good book or continue through the sunroom to find an outdoor terrace for quiet moments in the evenings or starting your day with a cup of tea. This private outdoor space is incredibly rare for a central London apartment and is just one of the many features guests love during their stay at Shelbourne. You'll even have access to the gated communal garden square, an ideal spot to relax surrounded by nature – right at your doorstep.


For charm and convenience, this Kensington location couldn’t be better. The neighbourhood is full of great restaurants and cute cafe choices as well as excellent food shopping all just a few minutes’ walk away. Hop on the Tube at Gloucester Road nearby to easily reach all corners of London. Enjoying a morning run or leisurely walk through Kensington Gardens is a favorite local pastime. Don’t miss the chance to visit the Kensington Palace, home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family, or visit the world-class cultural sights in the area: the Royal Albert Hall, Victoria and Albert Museum and Science Museum. Fall in love with London all over again at the Shelbourne!

Loved the Shelbourne

by Tracy Zams

We absolutely loved the apartment. It truly felt like home for the two weeks that we stayed there. The bed was super comfortable, like sleeping on a cloud. The host was super nice and left us tea, coffee, juice, water, etc. We loved the area, the local restaurants, and how convenient the location was. You could walk to multiple grocery and convenient stores. It was also a quick walk to Gloucester Tube Station. I highly recommend London Perfect, as well as, the Shelbourne.
