history

Following the success 1851 Great Exhibition in Hyde Park for which the Crystal Palace was built, an 87 acre area, around what is now Exhibition Road, was purchased by the commissioners of the exhibition in order to create a home for institutions dedicated to the arts and sciences. The result was the foundation of the Victoria and Albert, Science and Natural History Museums, as well as Imperial College. In fact, South Kensington is one of the most densely populated areas of art and culture in the UK if not Europe boasting those institutions above as well as The Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Palace, Serpentine Gallery, Royal Geographic Society and the headquarters of the worldwide scouting movement.
