Thousands took farewell of the Queen

Thousands of Kensingtonians took a fond farewell of Queen Elizabeth II when she did her last trip thorough the borough on Monday 19 September 2022. The funeral cortège went through Kensington Gardens along South Carriage Drive, then down Queen’s Gate, before following Cromwell Road over to Hammersmith.

Refurbished Kensington Roof Gardens will be private club again

After having been closed since January 2018, refurbishment has begun of the listed Kensington Roof Gardens, atop the former Derry & Toms department store on Kensington High Street. But access for the general public will be very limited, as its three gardens and buildings once again will become a private members’ club.
