Home of some very high end retailers harrods, Harvey Nichols, Burberry. Though you can walk, recommend you get the tube. Mega busy with tourists and shoppers. Probably needs a pavement about twice as wide. Museums, shops, gifts eateries - amazing choice.

I used to love this area. It has some amazing places to visit and some great shopping. However, it has become to busy. You can hardly walk along the pavement. You will be pushed and I have found that people are quiet rude. Less locals frequent the area and it's mainly tourists. There is also a issue with supper cars... More

Knightsbridge has certainly changed over the years since I first knew it. There's little of the old fashionable London about the place now, so many tourists with the majority from the Middle East you could be forgiven to think you were in another country. Harrods has become a centre for the nouveau-riche, it still has some attraction if you overlook... More

Everyone should find time to walk along Knightsbridge visiting the boutiques and then Harrods and Harvey Nichols.

Knightsbridge is home to Harrods and so much more. It's got some of the best clubs and restaurants for those special occasions. It also has some of the best shopping and is only a few blocks from Hyde Park. This is one of my favorite areas of London and it looks great during the holidays.

I love this area of London although you need to be aware of the prices that can be charged, especially local restaurants in side streets! But a beautiful, rich area!

This area of London was one of the best, but the influx of Middle Eastern folks has been too great, the loss of pubs to provide private housing too frequent, and the traditions of the past lost. The Westminster Council has not served its citizens well...

Knightsbridge is one of the most luxurious parts of London. It offers great architecture with some fancy stores and coffee shops

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’.

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.
