I've read this tip on GameFAQs but not sure who came up with it.

The fastest way to get experience is in Chapter 6-4, where you fight the Evil Butcher. Go through the fight as normal, and when his health is almost gone he will become invincible and put a pot over his head.

At this point, to finish the fight you just need to hit him with a whip attack while jumping, after which you can grapple his sword and do a QTE to kill him. You will get 1000 experience points.

DO NOT pick up the key he drops. Instead, reload the last checkpoint, which will put you at the point of the fight where he has the pot on his head. You can then repeat killing him over and over for 1000 experience each time, as long as you don't pick up the key.
