Kensington High Street
Kensington Palace Gardens is a gated street in west central London which contains some of the grandest and most expensive houses in the world. It was the location of the London Cage, the British government MI9 torture center used during the Second World War and the Cold War. There is a 24 hour guard at the main gate and no photography is allowed within the gates of the street.
A tree-lined avenue half a mile long in the heart of "Embassy Land", Kensington Palace Gardens is the "most exclusive address" in London, according to Knight Frank. It is one of the most expensive residential streets in the world, and has long been known as "Billionaires Row", due to the wealth of its private residents, although the majority of its current occupants are embassies and ambassadorial residences.
