Attractions and Places to Visit in West London

Traditionally the stalking ground of the capital's rich and famous, West London's attractions include world-class museums, shopping, galleries, entertainment and even a royal palace.

Start your visit with West London's biggest and best museums, conveniently situated next to each other on South Kensington's Museum Mile. The Science Museum is devoted to industry, technology and science and attracts over 3 million visitors a year; the Victoria & Albert Museum teaches you about all things fashion and style; and the Natural History Museum, in the striking Waterhouse Building, is probably the best museum of its type in the world. Combine these three attractions for a great day out.

These stand-out things to do are complemented by West London's other places to visit. For entertainment, you could hardly do better than the Royal Albert Hall and Wembley Stadium. For art, the Saatchi Gallery. For shopping, Harrods department store and Portobello Road. For natural beauty, Kew Gardens is a short train ride away. And for history, the home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (aka Wills and Kate), Kensington Palace.
