The street was declared London's second best shopping street in February 2005 thanks to its range and number of shops. Kensington's second activity centre is South Kensington, where a variety of small shops are clustered close to South Kensington tube station. This is also the southern end of Exhibition Road, the thoroughfare that serves the area's museums and educational institutions.
Kensington is part of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, and lies within the Kensington parliamentary constituency. Prior to 1965 Kensington formed the Royal Borough of Kensington and some residents objected to the merger with Chelsea, formerly an inexpensive and bohemian borough compared with the fashionable Royal Borough.
