Holland Park is a fashionable and expensive area of west London which is bordered by Shepherd's Bush to the west, Notting Hill to the north, Kensington to the east and Earl's Court to the south.

Holland Park is set in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and houses the largest park in the borough, also called Holland Park, with 22.5 hectares of gardens, areas of wildlife, cricket, football and tennis areas and Kyoto Garden, a Japanese meditation garden.

Some of the finest properties in Holland Park are located in Holland Park and Holland Villas Road. Many of the period and post war houses have been converted into flats which offer bright and spacious accommodation as they retain many of the original features including high ceilings and large windows. Many of the stucco fronted and Victorian terraces still do remain as houses.

This quality area is popular with professionals, celebrities, families, diplomats and dog walkers due to the excellent recreation facilities, schools, shopping, boutiques and delis, and facilities located close by, which include High Street Kensington and Portobello Market, plus opera in the park.

Brief history of Holland Park

Until the 19th century the area was rural and most of it was formerly the grounds of a Jacobean mansion called Holland House owned by Lord Holland.

Towards the end of that century the owners of the house sold off the more outlying parts of its grounds for residential development, and the area which evolved took its name from the house plus some small areas around the fringes which had never been part of the grounds of Holland House, notably the Phillimore Estate (there are at least four roads with the word Phillimore in their name) and the Campden Hill Square area.

In the late 19th century a number of notable artists and art collectors lived in the area. The group were known as "The Holland Park Circle". Holland Park was generally an upper middle class when originally developed and in recent decades has gone further upmarket.
