A beautiful area with it is high-end shops and department stores, although do not drive in the area it would be quicker to walk. The Arab boys do spoil the summer evenings though with their luxury sports cars and awful behaviour; ‘daddy will not tolerate it at home but come to London and do whatever you want’.

Knightsbridge is an area in London not to be missed due to its high reputation of housing many of the richest people on the planet and as well for admiring the nice architecture that many buildings in the area have (not to mention the many high class shops, including the famous Harrods). A beautiful, but quite long walk in the... More

Love visiting in the passed years but this time was different. Certain classes could turn this area into a tourist wasteland.

We walked through Knightsbridge to get to Hyde Park. Lots of shops still open even after 5pm on a Sunday. The shops had some amazing window displays. All types of people, dressed up and great for people watching. The traffic though is ridiculous - reminds me never to drive through central London!

I love visiting London and enjoy getting lost around the streets of Knightsbridge. As well as Harrods, you have a number of really nice restaurants in the area - a bit pricey, but a mix of amazing food and top service.

This is one of the nice area of London. The renowned famous Harrods store is located there, along with Harvey Nichols. There are many high street and designer brands in this area on Brampton road, and Sloane street, leading to Sloane square. For dining, you also have many options from fast food, fresh sandwiches, to casual and fine dining restaurants.... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighborhood Profile
Knightsbridge
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.
