Bordering Hyde Park, Knightsbridge is home to the famous Harrods department store. First established in 1834, it’s now known across the globe for its luxury shopping. The window displays are an attraction in their own right, with amazing Christmas themes and flamboyant fashion shows throughout the year. There’s a range of restaurants located in the store offering fine dining experiences, while The Tea Room is the perfect place for a spot of afternoon tea. Nearby Harvey Nichols also offers plenty of opportunities for some retail therapy.

Knightsbridge is close to the Victoria and Albert Museum, also known as The V&A. As the world’s largest museum of decorative arts and design, it spans 5,000 years including work from Europe, North America, Africa and Asia. The collection includes everything from textiles and paintings to photography and sculpture.

You can enjoy this stylish area by hopping off at Knightsbridge Tube station on the Piccadilly line, or by booking into a Knightsbridge hotel.
