London area of W14 guide

What to do and where to stay in London's W14 neighbourhood

The postcode area of W14 is primarily home to West Kensington, on the western edge of central London. The notable landmarks of the area are the Olympia, an exhibition and events centre, and The Queen's Club, a private sporting complex which hosts an annual grass court tennis tournament in the lead up to Wimbledon. A residential area, within touching distance of the centre of the city, W14 consists mainly of Victorian terraced houses, many of which are subdivided into flats. There are excellent examples of Victorian architecture, with several houses and some entire streets listed. An influx of spill-over wealth from nearby Kensington means that the area has experienced significant developments including the opening of more speciality shops, eateries and gastropubs. The Olympia is perhaps the area's most prominent feature and it hosts such events as BBC Good Food London, the London International Horse Show and the Spirit of Christmas Fair. W14 also includes part of the upmarket residential area of Holland Park.
