Knights­bridge can be described in three words: wealthy, inter­na­tion­al and shop­ping. Locat­ed between May­fair, Kens­ing­ton and Bel­gravia, it’s one of the most exclu­sive res­i­den­tial and retail dis­tricts in west Lon­don and, of course, home to the world famous depart­ment store, Har­rods.  As well as shop­ping, Knights­bridge is renowned for its range of exclu­sive bars, restau­rants and clubs to suit all tastes and attracts the rich, the roy­al and the cel­e­brat­ed from all over the globe.

Prop­er­ty prices in the area are sky high and although vir­tu­al­ly in the heart of the city, res­i­den­tial streets are often locat­ed in qui­et, tree-lined squares, tucked away from the buzz and activ­i­ty of Bromp­ton Road and Sloane Street.  The archi­tec­ture is impos­ing and most­ly ear­ly 19th cen­tu­ry red brick Queen Anne revival build­ings or white stuc­co town hous­es by Thomas Cubitt (see ‘What to Do in Bel­gravia’) — wan­der the streets, absorb the cos­mopoli­tan atmos­phere and enjoy the shop­ping.

Palaces & Muse­ums

Buck­ing­ham Palace: the Queen’s offi­cial Lon­don res­i­dence and cen­tre of Britain’s con­sti­tu­tion­al monar­chy.  Built in 1837, the Palace has 775 rooms and mea­sures 108 metres across the front, 120 metres deep (includes the cen­tral quad­ran­gle) and is 24 metres high.  The Palace is open to vis­i­tors each year from July to Sep­tem­ber and the 19 room tour includes the grand hall, gar­den, lake and library.

Vic­to­ria & Albert (V&A): Found­ed in 1852 to inspire and edu­cate British design­ers & man­u­fac­tur­ers, today it hous­es more than 4 mil­lion pieces span­ning cen­turies and cul­tures. Spe­cial attrac­tions include the £30 mil­lion regen­er­at­ed space that is now the Medieval and Renais­sance Gal­leries that dis­play a unique col­lec­tion of mas­ter­pieces of medieval crafts­man­ship.

The Nat­ur­al His­to­ry Muse­um: the Dinosaur gallery is one of the most pop­u­lar exhibits in the muse­um which is also home to more than 70 mil­lion spec­i­mens from across the nat­ur­al world, includ­ing insects, fos­sils and rocks.  For adults, and espe­cial­ly chil­dren, it’s a great day out where they can try their hand at becom­ing a sci­en­tist, take part in gallery trails and art activ­i­ties, step inside the ‘solar sys­tem’ or even ‘expe­ri­ence’ an earth­quake.

The Sci­ence Muse­um : Anoth­er great day out for chil­dren — the muse­um col­lec­tion includes machin­ery, cars, space explo­ration dis­plays and plen­ty of inter­ac­tive activ­i­ties.

Open Spaces

For a pic­nic, an evening stroll, or full-on exer­cise Hyde Park is right on the doorstep behind the impres­sive Bromp­ton Ora­to­ry. The Park opens every day from 5am to mid­night and offers plen­ty of space and activ­i­ties — come rain or shine. Dur­ing the sum­mer months pop­u­lar musi­cal events are held here and in the win­ter (Novem­ber-Jan­u­ary) a Win­ter Won­der­land is the main fes­tive attrac­tion.

Kens­ing­ton Gar­dens: recent­ly vot­ed one of the UK’s favourite out­door spaces, (dai­ly mail web­site – image) it’s a small­er, qui­eter space with lots of points of inter­est and places to explore: the Peter Pan stat­ue, the Ital­ian Gar­dens, the Ser­pen­tine Gallery and the Diana, Princess of Wales memo­r­i­al play­ground.

Shop­ping

Knights­bridge is one of London’s finest shop­ping areas.  Between Bromp­ton Road, Sloane Street and Knights­bridge you’ll find British and Inter­na­tion­al fash­ion hous­es and below are just a few of the design­ers to check-out:

  • Shoe design­ers: Jim­my Choo & Manolo Blah­nik
  • French Fash­ion: Dior, Louis Vuit­ton, Chanel,
  • Inter­na­tion­al: Joseph, Dolce & Gab­bana, Ver­sace, Guc­ci, Her­mes, Pra­da, Saint Lau­rent, Boss and many more
  • Scotch Cor­ner is home to Burber­ry offer­ing high-qual­i­ty Scot­tish goods includ­ing a Tar­tan room, men’s and women’s fash­ions

And, Har­rods, the world’s most famous depart­ment store, began in the mid­dle of the 19th cen­tu­ry when Hen­ry Charles Har­rod start­ed a gro­cery shop on Bromp­ton Street.  A shift in focus to sell­ing high qual­i­ty goods rather than com­pet­ing for low prices result­ed in expan­sion and the shop becom­ing a tremen­dous suc­cess.

Today, fea­tures include 60 fash­ion depart­ments, a cel­e­brat­ed Food Hall and at night the store is lit by 11,000 lights. Although Har­rods is open to all, there is still a strict dress code and cus­tomers have been turned away for wear­ing too lit­tle!

Har­vey Nichols: began life in 1813 as a linen shop on the cor­ner of Knights­bridge and Sloane Street and pro­gressed in the 1880’s to sell­ing lux­u­ry goods. Today, it’s a favourite stomp­ing ground for fash­ion and food lovers with eight floors offer­ing supe­ri­or home wares, fash­ion and beau­ty, and the entire fifth floor ded­i­cat­ed to food and restau­rants.

Restau­rants: Knights­bridge offers a choice of superb award win­ning restau­rants and cuisines.  Below are some sug­ges­tions to try out:

Mr Chow (151 Knights­bridge): glitz, glam­our and styl­ish Chi­nese food.  Enjoy watch­ing famous dish­es being pre­pared and famous peo­ple.

Zaf­fer­a­no (15 Lown­des Street): Miche­lin star.  Hon­est, whole­some Ital­ian cui­sine at its best.

Foliage Restau­rant (66 Knights­bridge, set in the Man­darin Ori­en­tal Hotel): Miche­lin star restau­rant and beau­ti­ful din­ing room with mag­nif­i­cent views over Hyde Park.

Petrus (1 Kin­ner­ton Street, inside the plush Berke­ley Hotel): Miche­lin star restau­rant and home to the gut­sy and robust cui­sine of celebri­ty chef Mar­cus Ware­ing. Mod­ern French cui­sine and a favourite with celebs, it’s and reg­u­lar­ly referred to by the crit­ics as the best fine din­ing restau­rant in Lon­don.

5th Floor Café at Har­vey Nichols: pan-Mediter­ranean menu and a place to be seen.  There’s plen­ty of space and love­ly ter­race avail­able dur­ing the sum­mer months.

Amaya (19 Mot­comb Street) Miche­lin star Indi­an cui­sine with a dif­fer­ence.  The open kitchen serves ele­gant dish­es cooked either on the tan­door, sigri grill or tawa skil­let and described as a ‘plea­sure for the sens­es’.

Racine (239 Bromp­ton Road): warm, friend­ly and neigh­bour­hood favourite.  Good Bour­geois French cook­ing and short but great wine list.

Vik­tor Restau­rant (116 Knights­bridge): mod­ern and tra­di­tion­al Japan­ese cui­sine.

Ish­bi­la (9 William Street): fam­i­ly-owned restau­rant serv­ing ‘top-notch’ Lebanese food in a sophis­ti­cat­ed, fash­ion­able set­ting.

Maria Van­na (116 Knights­bridge): authen­tic Russ­ian cui­sine, although the décor is more like a cramped liv­ing room than restau­rant.

A Short His­to­ry: From vil­lage, to haven for the wealthy and well-heeled.

Orig­i­nal­ly a small ham­let between the vil­lages of Chelsea (Chelsey), Kens­ing­ton (Kens­ing town) and Char­ing, Knights­bridge was named after a bridge that crossed over the, now under­ground, Riv­er West­bourne.  As far back as 1141 it is record­ed that the cit­i­zens of Lon­don met Matil­da of Eng­land at the Knight’s Bridge and over the cen­turies, the area was renowned as the haunt of high­way­men, rob­bers and cut throats tar­get­ing trav­ellers on the west­ern route out of Lon­don.

The manor of Knights­bridge passed into the hands first of the Whash­es, or Wal­sh­es, and then into those of a fam­i­ly named Davis. The last male mem­ber of the fam­i­ly, Alexan­der Davis, left an only daugh­ter and heiress, Mary, who, in 1676, was mar­ried to Sir Thomas Grosvenor, whose descen­dants are the present Duke of West­min­ster and Lord Ebury. Today, the 6th Duke of West­min­ster is still the prin­ci­pal landown­er and owns vast pieces of real estate across Lon­don.
