Exclusive shops, restaurant and entertainment - the home of Harrods
London's exclusive Knightsbridge, in the fabulous Royal Borough Of Kensington & Chelsea, is where style is at in Central London. It is one of London's most attractive areas and it's flagship store, the unique Harrods, and a host of renowned couture houses all give the area an elegant exclusivity that is second to none. Harrods has an amazing 300 departments within the store and is itself one of London's major tourist attractions employing over 3000 staff.
Harvey Nichols is a chic alternative just along the road from Harrods - a brilliant place to buy quality designer wear and a huge range of beauty products. Along Sloane Street, many exclusive brands have their large, stylish London shops - Christian Dior, Chanel, Prada, Gucci, Aramani to name but a few. Quality serviced apartments and 5* luxury hotels abound in Knightsbridge and there are lots of brilliant top quality international restaurants where you can dine in style. Some are Michelin starred and offer an excellent selection of carefully prepared fare featuring cuisines from around the globe.
Knightsbridge is the most fascinating place for people watching and a fabulous place to watch top of the range sports cars as they growl through the hustle and bustle of shoppers and traffic at surprisingly low speeds!
Knightsbridge is also good for traditional English pubs and quality restaurants, namely Osteria Romana, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, The Rosebery at Mandarin Oriental, Ognisko Restaurant, Outlaw's At The Capital, Rivea London, Patara Thai Cuisine, the Zuma Bar, Bulgari Hotel Bar, the Rib Room Bar and Restaurant, The Blue Bar and Fifth Floor.
Knightsbridge lies along the south side of London's beautiful Hyde Park and is bordered by Kensington (where London's major museums are located), Earls Court (location of exhibition centre), Belgravia and Chelsea.
The area is served by Knightsbridge Tube Station (on the Piccadilly line) which is right beside Harrods (accessible by a pedestrian tunnel) and the underground station at Hyde Park Corner is just 7 minutes' walk away. The nearest railway station is Victoria. If you are driving to London, you will be pleased to note that NCP car parking is available at Knightsbridge Green and Pavilion Road.
Two of our most popular serviced apartment residences, The Capital Hotel and Basil Street Apartments are literally just 2 minutes' walk from Harrods' entrance and are perfect for long weekends in the capital. They are also popular with corporate executives working temporarily in the area. We are often able to negotiate some very good deals at these locations if you are visiting London out of season so please call us on +44 208 421 5411 with your dates and details of what you need. For those guests in the capital for longer, particularly over the summer months, we offer a good selection of unique serviced apartments and townhouses from the Cheval portfolio - again located just a couple of minutes' walk from Harrods.
If you want to be nearby, but are on a slightly tighter budget, then we suggest you consider the Belgravia area, where we offer the excellent Chesham Court - great for couples and families alike.
We offer a number of five star 3 bedroom apartments in the area, ideal if you are bringing your family to London for the summer. The rates are obviously higher at that time of the year but we guarantee you will not be disappointed with your choice!
For guests looking for an exclusive apartment in a classic period residence then we would recommend Beaufort House Apartments in nearby Beaufort Gardens. Often booked up from year to year by guests who love to return, we urge you to let us know immediately you wish to stay here is availability is scarce.
Another exclusive property we offer, also in Beaufort Gardens, is Claverley Court. Ranging from small studios - ideal for an individual or couple in London for a short stay - to 3 bedroom luxury suites. All apartments offer 5* services. There is a 24 hour reception desk and the apartments are serviced daily. Claverley Court is highly recommended - and of course is within easy walking distance of Harrods of Knightsbridge.
Whilst in the Knightsbridge and Kensington area you will be able to visit the Albert Memorial, Wellington Arch, Apsley House, Brompton Oratory, the Royal Albert Hall, the Science Museum, the Natural History Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum. There's lots to do if you are bringing children to London - particularly with these three fabulous hands-on museums.
Enthusiastic and knowledgeable - we love Knightsbridge and are always here to help you!
