Adjacent to Central London's largest public park, Hyde Park, Knightsbridge is one of London's most sought-after and affluent residential areas.The eponymous district comprises the area south of Hyde Park, east of Exhibition Road and west of Sloane Street. Beauchamp Place and the western section of Pont Street serve roughly as its southern border though adjacent gardens and squares such as Lennox Gardens and Cadogan Square can be considered parts of Knightsbridge. South of this area, the district fades into Brompton and Chelsea while Belgravia lies to the East.
The recent residential development at One Hyde Park has set a new benchmark in both terms of price and expectations. Houses are being extended underground in order to build swimming pools, gyms and even private nightclubs as well as garaging which sinks below ground, out of sight.
Home to shops including Harvey Nichols and Harrods, Prada and Gucci, Knightsbridge draws in the tourist and the abundance of excellent restaurants, 5 star hotels, nightclubs and galleries, all within easy reach, keep them entertained.
