Where is Knightsbridge?

Knightsbridge is commonly referred to as one of the most unchanged, attractive areas located in West London. Unlike some surrounding districts that are metropolitan hubs with corporate offices, hedge funds, and embassies, Knightsbridge is home to small retail shops, local restaurants and picturesque residences. With Hyde Park bordering the district to the North, Knightsbridge gives visitors access to the fresh air and beautiful scenery that West London has to offer. This means that a visitor to London can live in a high-end property in a fashionable district yet be only moments from some of the most desirable monuments in the city. Shop ’til you drop in the morning and spend the afternoon visiting museums and art galleries and then still have time for theater in the evening.

History of Knightsbridge

Centuries ago, this area was somewhat of a no man’s land and it wasn’t until the 19th century that it began to develop into the exclusive location that we find today. One fable suggests the name came because the bridge was crossed over by knights going to London to fight the holy wars. A more dramatic fable tells of two knights that both fell to their deaths in the river while battling each other on the bridge. While visiting Hyde Park it is fun to imagine if the ancient bridge might still exist! The buildings and street corners that grace Knightsbridge today hint at the rich history that’s engrained in the town’s foundation. 

Thanks to improvements on the roads into and out of London that ran through Knightsbridge at the start of World War I, motor traffic increased, shops started to spring up, and the already admirable village became an even more desirable place to live. The architecture that remains today is reminiscent of the early 20th century, giving it a uniquely traditional, and wonderful atmosphere. There have been few structures added since World War II, allowing Knightsbridge to maintain its reputation for being an area with high-class shops and rich character.

Things To Do In Knightsbridge

Known for its shopping establishments, one of the most popular things to do in Knightsbridge is shopping. With renowned stores like Harrods and Harvey Nichols, and notable brands like Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik and Chanel all located within short walking distance of each other, Knightsbridge offers some of the best shopping opportunities in the city. Supplement your shopping escapades with some sightseeing to nearby attractions like:

Be “In-The-Know” While Visiting Knightsbridge

Like other areas in London with designer stores, prices in Knightsbridge can be relatively high. However, even if you aren’t visiting for the sole purpose of shopping, touring through these establishments can be quite the experience. Also, due to its central location, Knightsbridge does tend to suffer from traffic congestion, noise, and crowds. Thanks to the close proximity of Hyde Park, you can quickly escape to peace and quiet.

Words like luxury shopping, fine dining, high end, exceptional architecture, beautiful automobiles, style, fashion, elegance define this amazing part of London where many visitors choose to stay.
