Knightsbridge is known as a luxury shopping and residential district. It is mostly located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. With Hyde Park on one side, and Belgravia to the other, Knightsbridge is perfectly placed in the lap of luxury.
Notable brands in the area include Ferrari, Harvey Nichols, Rolex, Aquascutum and Porsche Design.
The most well-known store in the area is Harrods. Founded in 1834, this luxury department store is the de facto destination for the rich. It is the biggest department store in Europe, with 330 departments and retail space of 1 million ft2 (90,000 m2). It is worth exploring to see the incredible variety of things on offer, and the beautiful food court has to be seen to be believed.
