Can't understand why this location has such a reputation. Ok it's got Harrods and there are lots of flash expensive cars driving round the streets but there are only bog standard cafes for a coffee the streets are filthy and all the building works don't help. Harrods is full of flash chavs, they might have money but they've got no... More

Not sure why Knightsbridge is such a big deal. Ok Harrods and Harvey Nichs but it feels too crowded, too confused, too chaotic for my liking. Nothing would take me there other than our current close proximity.

Harrods is synonomous with Knightsbridge. Just looking in their food halls is a delightful sensory experience - the delicious smells and gorgeous displays are different from any other food hall. The staff are very helpful, obliging and friendly. Thank you Harrods for a wonderful experience !

Home of some very high end retailers harrods, Harvey Nichols, Burberry. Though you can walk, recommend you get the tube. Mega busy with tourists and shoppers. Probably needs a pavement about twice as wide. Museums, shops, gifts eateries - amazing choice.

I used to love this area. It has some amazing places to visit and some great shopping. However, it has become to busy. You can hardly walk along the pavement. You will be pushed and I have found that people are quiet rude. Less locals frequent the area and it's mainly tourists. There is also a issue with supper cars... More

Knightsbridge has certainly changed over the years since I first knew it. There's little of the old fashionable London about the place now, so many tourists with the majority from the Middle East you could be forgiven to think you were in another country. Harrods has become a centre for the nouveau-riche, it still has some attraction if you overlook... More

Everyone should find time to walk along Knightsbridge visiting the boutiques and then Harrods and Harvey Nichols.

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
