A Walk Round Kensington and Holland Park Part Two

Having said goodbye to the tortoises, we continued in our mission to find Holland Park (the street) along with Holland Park Mews.

The Holland Park houses are all very similar (except for the Greek Embassy, which I didn't photograph for the obvious reason, and also because it's not very pretty), but sadly tricky to do justice to without trees and cars getting in the way:
Holland Park 140613 (10)


Holland Park Mews, on the other hand, is full of properties which may have once been very similar to each other, but have since been adapted in lots of different ways.
Holland Park 140613 (13)

Holland Park 140613 (17) Holland Park 140613 (21)

Holland Park 140613 (22) Holland Park 140613 (27)


Looking down and up the Mews as a whole:
Holland Park 140613 (18) Holland Park 140613 (20)


Incidentally, the numbering of the mews houses in no way matches the numbering of the houses they back onto:
Holland Park 140613 (23) Holland Park 140613 (29)


More Holland Park houses from various angles:
Holland Park 140613 (43) Holland Park 140613 (44)


Holland Park 140613 (47) Holland Park 140613 (45)


And then we wandered back through the Park, and had a look at what's left of Holland House:
Holland Park 140613 (50) Holland Park 140613 (51)
