Kensington - a part of London known for its upscale restaurants, including the Michelin-starred Kitchen W8 - is set for a different kind of gastronomic experience this summer.
Residents can now buy tickets to the London Food Month Night Market, which takes place nightly at Perks Field near Kensington Gardens between 7th and 18th June.
Around 40 stalls set up by street food vendors will create a bustling after-dark atmosphere, with an amazing support act of mobile cocktail bars, film screenings, live music and art. Already confirmed are Patty & Bun, Smokestak and Martin Morales, founder of the Ceviche group of restaurants.
The London Night Market joins Paddington Pergola Central - another celebration of street food, this time set overlooking Paddington Basin and operating daily from 24th May for 19 weeks. Promised are live DJs, lush green landscaping and debuts from four new London restaurants.
If you're looking for a new home in London, why not combine your foodie visits with some property viewings? Lurot Brand - a specialist in the sale and let of mews houses, with properties available in both Kensington and Paddington, would be happy to devise you a schedule of afternoon viewings leaving you plenty of time to visit the markets.
There will be “busker-style” acoustic entertainment and an open-air cinema provided by Westfield showing films including Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
