History of Holland Park

Like Kensington, Holland Park was rural until the 19th century. Most of it was formerly the grounds of a Jacobean mansion called Holland House. Eventually the owners of the house sold off the more outlying parts of its grounds for residential development and the district took its name from the house. It also included some small areas around the fringes which had never been part of the grounds of Holland House, notably the Phillimore Estate and the Campden Hill Square area. In the late 19th century a number of notable artists (including Frederic Leighton, P.R.A. and Val Prinsep) and art collectors lived in the area. The group were collectively known as "The Holland Park Circle". Holland Park was an upper middle class area and has gone further upmarket with time.

Some 19th century residential developments still survive, notably The Royal Crescent designed in 1839, similar in design to its older namesake in Bath.

Holland Park is now one of the most expensive residential districts in London or anywhere in the world. A number of countries maintain embassies here. Holland Park has is wealthy fashionable area, with large Victorian townhouses, and high-class shopping and restaurants. There are many popular shopping destinations located around Holland Park such as High Street Kensington, Notting Hill, Holland Park Avenue, Portobello Market, Westbourne Grove, Clarendon Cross, and Ledbury Road. There is always a wide choice of top end large flats or town houses.
