A hundred and fifty years ago, the creators of the Great Exhibition bought up huge quantities of land in South Kensington. As we know it today is now Exhibition Road, it used the space to set up permanent homes for great institutions of the arts and sciences. It is now possible to spend days and days exploring any one of South Kensington’s famous museums. There’s the Science Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Natural History Museum, all of them are timeless British institutions which house some of the very best museum exhibits and displays in Europe, if not the world. The areas around the museums are filled with very interesting places for you and your London Valentine’s escort to eat out in fact, you may feel spoiled for choice.
The Queen’s Tower of Imperial College is also worth a mention, and it’s partly due to the numbers of students attracted by the university and that South Kensington has such an international flavour. Vast numbers of students and sexy escort girls from Europe, Asia and the South America have led to a rise in eateries that specialize in cheap, cheerful forms of tasty foreign cuisine, so the area is a great place to sample a slightly more exotic bite to eat, as well as some very exotic tasty ladies!
In fact, this area of London is one that seems to be very much in touch with the rest of the world and particularly with those parts of it that are just across the channel. South Kensington plays part to a number of French cafes, French bookshops and language schools, as well as the French consulate.
