The Kensington location of M&S has a wide-ranging selection. It's one of the more well-stocked London locations. I recently headed here to check out the new Josh Wood hair products as they were one of the few local locations to receive them upon release. The service was especially helpful and friendly. Very nice!
It's ok for the Basics. I have this practice of wearing men's shirts because I think the price and quality is better. At this store I could see myself wearing their men's button-down shirts from the Autograph line. Surprisingly, the women's Autograph line is the same quality and price but I still prefer the men's line for it's colors.
Woolen socks are of better quality in the men's department than women's department too. If only i could find my size. Hey, socks are socks.
Is it just me or does the most of High Street Ken look a little dated? This store included.
Someone said that's it's the equivalent to a Macy's in the states but I say more on par with a Sears.
Clearly a flagship store for the high street chain, this branch - fittingly for its setting - has an upmarket, (relatively) designer feel. On several levels, it's a pleasure to shop here. The layout is clean, tidy and well-displayed. Follow the signs to your preferred department, or explore at your leisure, and you're likely to find plenty to tempt you.
Food and drink is in the basement with its own separate entrance. Most ladies fashion is on the ground floor (although the majority of accessories are sited on the first floor). If the scale of it exhausts you, there's a handy café to relax and recharge in. Even during sale time it remains relatively tidy and a pleasant place to shop. Due to its size, stock levels are generally good and often better than many other central branches.
I often find myself shopping in this big M&S store. Whether it's the weekly food shop (food hall is downstairs) or lingerie/bed linen/towels on the upper floor, I've always had a high opinion with regards to their quality & good-valued products. I don't buy clothing (other than lingerie) here as the smallest sizing they do is an 8 and I'm a small 6, but I've noticed that they've started to introduce size 6 into a few of their ranges, so maybe I'll start buying their clothing too...
They do sell everything here from womens clothing, lingerie, accessories, shoes, menswear, childrenswear, homewear and food.
M&S in Kensington is arranged over three floors. There is an excellent food department in the basement offering a wide selection of products and a cafe with a small seating area where you can purchase hot food and drinks. There is quite a large wine section as well as plants and flowers and an in store bakery.
There is a well stocked lingerie department on the first floor. There is also a small Homeware
department. Cafe Revive is also situated on this floor. It's not all that spacious and at busy times not a comfortable place to sit.
On the second floor you will find Menswear. There is also a Bureau de Change which is extremely useful when you are going to travel abroad and the best part is that it is commission free!
This branch of M&S is pretty large and arranged over three floors with a basement food hall. You can pretty much find anything you might need that can be found in M&S and at the moment they have the Christmas shop on the first floor for any 3 for 2 Christmas gifts or Christmas decorations you might need.
The food hall in the basement is very well stocked too and caters for those looking for lunch to take back to the office or eat on the run. They even have self service tills to make your shopping experience that much quicker.
This M&S is incredibly convenient especially for a quick grocery run as you're coming off the tube at High Street Kensington. While the food hall is excellent I have found that they don't carry (or the staff has not been able to direct me to) some relatively simple ingredients. My most recent example has been when I was told by the staff that they didn't carry any barbecue sauce.
Their selection of shoes is amazing and unlike the clothes in most cases, the prices are very reasonable. Additionally, the bureau de change is one of the best kept secrets as they have the greatest exchange rates in town.
The store was really massive even on high street kensington.The shop offerd you nearly everything,and also offered travel service.The thing I like most about this shop is the new opening food kiosk.The food and drink were very good quality and the price was also good.Usually I would like to go to Pret a manger but now I had one more choice.
Also this shop was very good for chothes and sometime they had some brilliant offers.
Journey through all the delights Marks and Spencer's food has to offer in this vast cave of wonders. From melt in the mouth white chocolate chip cookies to smooth and creamy quiche wedges, there really is no beating M&S for high quality, seriously tasty food. As a specialist foodhall, this has the advantage of a large in-store bakery, meaning that pastries and cakes are freshly baked, and the smells lure you in from ten feet away from the entrance. Almost worth a journey High Street Kensington in itself, and if you're in the area, definitely worth a look around.
This store is just massive and well presented. Everything you might want to buy in Marks and Sparks. Their clothes is for slightly older women, sizes are hughe!! They have cute things for the little ones and their underwear is an old classic, good quality. The best bit is the food though!! real treat and such a difference that you don't mind paying that little bit extra.
I am writing this review on behalf of both me and my father. We are both massive fans of this Marks and Spencer shop. We especially love the deli bar which serves lovely fresh food quickly. There is also a funky set out where you can sit and watch your food being made. The salads are particularly nice and the coffee is great I am told. A shopping trip to High Street Ken would not be complete without a trip to this M and S.
