Best London Mews Streets – Prettiest London Mews

Kensington Mews

Kynance Mews London | best mews in london


Kynance Mews is one of the best Mews streets in London and one of my favourite places to explore in Kensington. The neighbourhood not only has one of the highest concentration of London mews, but also some of the prettiest in the city.

Kynance Mews is one of the most famous Mews in London. I am lucky enough to be able to visit this Mews in both autumn and spring. During spring the houses in this mews are covered with wisteria, and its arches glow burgundy red with autumn foliage.

No matter the season Kynance Mews is worth exploring when visiting London.

The entrance is flanked by stone arches with beautiful wisteria and roses climbing its multicoloured walls, and the lush vegetation outlines the cobbled sidewalks of the mews.

Also, right next to the mews is Christ Church Kensington, with a gorgeous lavender garden, that’s perfect for a quiet place to read a book or catch some rays during summer.

Kynance Mews is located near Gloucester Road Tube Station in Victoria Road Village.

Osten Mews is another pretty mews in London that is 2 minutes walking distance from Kynance Mews.
