Lancaster Gate takes its name from an entrance to Kensington Gardens and makes up part of the Borough of Westminster. Over the years, the area has been home to many notable residents including Sir Winston Churchill and J.M. Barrie. Residents are attracted by the Victorian stucco fronted houses that surround its garden squares. Now hosting some of the city's best restaurants and boutiques, the area will always be anchored by the draw of the open spaces of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, which offer residents a moment of tranquility from the city's buzz.
