London's exclusive Knightsbridge is where style is at in Central London. It is one of London's most attractive areas and it's flagship store, Harrods, and 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 a major tourist attraction 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.
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. 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.
