Kensington is a hilly suburb of Johannesburg, South Africa. It was established in 1897 by Max Langermann (after whom the thoroughfare Langermann Drive is named). It is located in Region 3[dated info] and is bounded to the west by the suburb of Troyeville, to the east by Bedfordview and the north by Bruma and Cyrildene.
Kensington is laid out over the slopes of several koppies (flat-topped, high-sided hills). The streets were laid out in 1902, and were heavily planted with trees, which give the area a distinctive, wooded appearance. Notable features of the suburb include Rhodes Park, named after Cecil Rhodes; Jeppe High School for Boys , Jeppe High School for Girls, and Kensington Castle. Kensington is a restaurant neighbourhood in development, with most restaurants and coffee shops being found tucked away amid the antique shops on Queen Street.
