Olympia Hotels - London

Mini guide to Olympia

     

Olympia, together with Earls Court, is best known for its extensive exhibition venues. At Earls Court Olympia, there are three large exhibition halls which regularly host trade shows and exhibitions, such as: Computing and IT shows, the Motor Show, the Boat Show, Crufts Dog Show and many others.

High Street Kensington is a well-known shopping street, with all the major brands represented. However, less well known is Kensington Church Street, off High Street Kensington; this is the place to shop for discount clothing from High Street retailers - check out Kensington Market. Also visit the art deco Barker's of Kensington department store, now part of Barker's Arcade.

A short stroll from High Street Kensington lies Holland Park, known as the most romantic of London parks. Opened in 1952, on what is still the grounds of Holland House, this park is much smaller than its other counterparts. However, this size is probably what makes it so romantic, with an adventure playground, Japanese garden, rose garden and ecology park. Holland House suffered bomb damage during World War II, and now only the ground floor and arcades remain. The restored east wing houses a youth hostel and the summer ballroom has been converted in to a contemporary restaurant, the Belvedere. The Orangery and ice-house are now galleries.

Chiswick House, also known as Burlington House, is a wonderful example of an English Palladian villa. It was built by Lord Burlington in 1725, and the design was inspired by the architecture and gardens of ancient Rome. The gardens of the house are also wonderful. Access is via Chiswick tube station.

The Olympia/Earls Court area can be reached via various tube stations: Earls Court (Piccadilly and District Lines), High Street Kensington (Circle and District Lines), and Olympia/Kensington (District Line). It is a gateway both to Central London and the Wimbledon area, which can easily reached via the District Line.
