Went to see a concert here, amazing impressive venue, great accoustics and great views of the stage from wherever you are. We had a box, only criticism is the seats were very uncomfortable, but did not detract from the night

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque

superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
