Imperial College’s South Kensington campus is located in the heart of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, a quiet and green part of the capital, yet close to several of London's major cultural landmarks. Imperial is next door to the Natural History Museum, the Royal Albert Hall, the Albert Memorial, the Science museum and the Victoria and Albert museum. Hyde Park, Kensington Palace and Harrods are a short walk away. London's other major attractions, including Buckingham Palace, the Palace of Westminster, the West End and Covent Garden can be reached in a few minutes by bus, tube (metro) or taxi.
