The Hilton London Olympia Hotel is located at the far West end of Kensington High Street . This is a main road and busy most times of the day. This section is really the start of West London and on the very far borders of Central London. Perfect location if you need access to the Olympia Exhibition centre since the hotel is just 200 yards along the same stretch of Road (though it becomes Hammersmith Road by the Exhibition centre). Indeed London's other major exhibition centre of Earls Court is only 0.6 miles to the south from here. Kensington High Street itself is one the roads that has become synonymous with London. Popular for its broad selection of shops, bars and cafes (including famous names such as Barkers of Kensington and Marks and Spencer's) with an upmarket feel. At its east end is Kensington Palace , the former home of Diana Princess of Wales with Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park adjacent. The west London location means its one of the first areas you hit as you enter London from Heathrow Airport, just a 20 minute taxi ride . Less than 500 yards to the north east of the Hilton Olympia is the 54 acres of Holland Park . A great place to take a walk and relax with its wildlife reserve and children's play area. 0.7 miles to the north is Shepherds Bush. Here there is more shopping plus clubs open at night along with Shepherds Bush Market. While a very busy area it is not as upmarket as Kensington High Street. Just slightly further in distance to the west is the major shopping High Street of 'King Street', just the other side of Hammersmith Broadway. However the main tourist areas of London are to be found to the east and south of this location with places such as Notting Hill (0.8 miles), South Kensington (1.4 miles), Kings Road, Chelsea (1.5 miles) and Knightsbridge (1.7 miles). Other local places of interest include Leighton house museum (0.1 miles), Commonwealth Institute (0.3 miles) and Linley Sambourne House (0.5 miles).
