Location & Hours

Holland Park is located between Kensington High Street and Holland Park Avenue. The nearest Underground Stations are High Street Kensington (Circle and District lines) and Holland Park (Central line).

Chess players gather at the open-air cafe which is nearer to Kensington High Street. Normally in the summer, games start at about 2pm, and there is play until about 9pm.

In the winter, the cafe and the park closes at about 5pm so play ends just before then. As it is cold, chess is played inside the cafe.

In the winter, chess players also congregate in Nero cafe, Wright's Lane, W8 and play until about 9pm (Saturdays until 10pm).
