The Kensington Division was one of four divisions of the Hundred of Ossulstone, in the county of Middlesex, England. The other divisions were named Finsbury, Holborn and Tower.

The division lay to the west and north west of the liberty of Westminster, and in 1889 it was divided, part passing to the new County of London and part remaining in Middlesex.

The area is now covered by four London Boroughs: Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea, most of Ealing and part of Hounslow.
