Knightsbridge, the most expensive and most exclusive area of London. Home of course to Harrods and Harvey Nichols, it boasts more billionaires in it’s boundaries than probably anywhere else in the world. However, whilst it’s glitz and glamour is without question it still offers quiet enclaves that almost have a village feel. Back streets of pretty houses as well as the glitzy apartment blocks like One Hyde Park and The Knightsbridge. Plenty of red brick mansion blocks with high ceiling’d apartments too.
Without doubt some of the finest restaurants in London are to be found here, including ‘Dinner’ the highly acclaimed new restaurant of Heston Blumenthal at the Mandarin Oriental. There is quite a demographic mix in Knightsbridge, popular with Middle Easter clients, often drawn by the proximity to Harrods, it is also home to a huge mix of nationalities, as well as the British. Many apartments and homes are only used for a few weeks of the year so secure properties, for example apartments with concierge services are at a premium.
The Brompton Road is at the heart of Knightsbridge, Harrods, Harvey Nichols nestled amongst high street brands. However, in the back streets you will find the independent boutiques offering high class wares.
