We travelled by the tube to Knightsbridge primarily to do some shopping at Harrods, the iconic department store. After we had concluded our shopping activities at Harrods, surprisingly with some cash still to spend, we decided to investigate the other side of Brompton Road. Located along that side of the road directly opposite Harrods, are a number of small shops,... More

We used the double-decker bus ride from Oxford Street to Knightsbridge. Disembarked at the bus stop just before HARRODS. Its already in the evening and the FAMOUS Harrods' lighting was ON! Wonderful scene and obviously we took several snaps. Must visit there at the evening times. Went into the iconic superstore. Enjoy the shopping at the foods section.

Love this fantastic area with Harrods and sorroundings. Shopping, food, beautiful buildings. So much London! If you spend like a 100 million pounds i Harrods, you are welcome to a special VIP night club in the french Riviera. Just go on shopping!

Basically this district is known for being the location of Harrods, Europe largest department store!!! But it also houses many luxury boutiques, including a Burberry, as well as other high street brands. You can also go to Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens as they are like 6 mins walk from the tube station ;)

Knightsbridge is an amazing place its got not only harrods which is a place to go! You have to see the architecture of the building and that takes a day by itself; the exotic cars that drive by and more

The reviewers who emphasize that Knightsbridge is more than just Harrods are spot-on. This is a lovely part of London. When we finished our shopping (not buying!) at Harrods we took time to appreciate the other charms of Knightsbridge, including the people watching. I want to return to check out more of the shops and restaurants when we aren’t so... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighborhood Profile
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
