This is the Art Deco frontage of Barkers of Kensington Department store which closed in 2006. Currently it is a whole food store but still looks as elegant today as it did when it was built in the late 19th C.
Just across the High Street is St Mary Abbotts church. The spire is 278 feet high and is the tallest parish church spire in London. The church stands where the original village of Kensington stood in the 8th C.
