Knightsbridge

Your All In London guide to Knightsbridge

The name Knightsbridge came from the reference to the crossing of the River Westbourne that was known as Knight’s Bridge, at least until the 12th century. Neighbouring areas include Chelsea and Belgravia making this one of the most expensive residential parts of London.

Everyone knows that Harvey Nichols is far better than Harrods, but tourists still flock to the latter, where everything is too expensive so they leave with a souvenir teddy bear/keyring as proof of their visit. Knightsbridge is everything you would suspect of London’s poshest neighbourhood: snooty, superficial and over the top. Designer boutiques, five star hotels and expensive restaurants compete for space, however unbelievably it is possible to find the odd cosy pub randomly tucked away from the main thoroughfares. It is also a great place to people watch, from the wannabe IT girls queuing to get into Vendome to the hapless rich men trying to entice them.
