High Street Kensington is a London Underground station at Kensington High Street.

The station is on the Circle Line between Gloucester Road and Notting Hill Gate, and the District Line between Earl's Court and Notting Hill Gate. It is in Travelcard Zone 1.

The station complex incorporates retail stores (including a Marks & Spencer and a Pret a Manger). The station itself has four platforms - two through platforms and two bay platforms. Platform 1 is used for anti-clockwise Circle Line and westbound District Line line trains towards Gloucester Road and Earl's Court, respectively. Platform 2 is for clockwise Circle Line and eastbound District Line trains towards Edgware Road. Platforms 3 and 4 are used for terminating District Line trains from Earl's Court. Platform 3 is usually used for the Olympia service and platform 4 is usually only used at the start and end of the day. There used to be a waiting room between Platform 2 & 3 for customer use, but this was turned into a staff room for drivers shortly before the Circle Line Hammersmith Extension was implemented in December 2009.

Just south of the station is the junction where the Circle and District lines diverge.

The typical off-peak service from this station is:
