London Guide

Our team loves a historical look at London, so we wanted to put together a little bit of interesting information on this wonderful part of the city. Originally a small village, Kensington grew up quickly into the cosmopolitan sophistication with which it is synonymous today. When William III (William of Orange, husband to Queen Mary), became King of England following the Glorious Revolution of 1688, he moved his court to Kensington Palace. Today, the Palace is home to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (William and Kate).

Set in the heart of central London, it is no surprise that writers, artists and actors have always flocked to this part of town. Kensington's small side streets and quiet squares have been home to a myriad of famous names, such as T.S Eliot and William Makepeace Thackeray. A notable example is Kensington Square, where George Bernard Shaw’s muse, the Edwardian actress named Mrs Patrick Campbell lived. She famously introduced Shaw to the woman who would become his inspiration for Eliza Doolittle: Isadora Duncan. One moonlit evening, Mrs P noticed someone dancing, without a strip of clothing on. It was a cold night, so out she went, and asked the girl who she was and where she came from. Isadora answered that she came from the moon, which Mrs P accepted with equanimity, but nevertheless insisted she come inside. And from this chance – and unusual meeting – Isadora Duncan’s dancing career was launched, thanks to Mrs P’s connections and enthusiasm.
