Knightsbridge Hotels - London

Mini guide to Knightsbridge

     

South Kensington and Knightsbridge are among the most prestigious areas of London. There are expensive hotels, restaurants, and homes, mixed in with some great shopping. It is a wonderful area to explore on foot.

Knightsbridge is home to British haute couture, with some elegant shopping and dining to be done at Harrods, London's most famous department store, and Harvey Nichols, the home of style. There are also lots of designer stores and other elegant shops along the Brompton Road, Sloane Street and Beauchamp Place. These shops are not for the price conscious shopper!

This area is also home to some of the best museums in London, such as the Natural History Museum, The Science Museum, and the Victoria and Albert Museum. All are easily accessible on foot and well worth a visit.

The Victoria and Albert Museum is the largest museum of decorative arts in the world. The Museum was founded in 1852 as a Museum of Manufactures to motivate and educate British manufacturers and designers. In 1899 it was renamed The Victoria and Albert Museum in honour of the widowed Queen Victoria, who laid the foundation stone of the building. There are 145 galleries within the museum with so much to see. The museum also contains the National Collections of furniture, sculpture, glass, ceramics, watercolours, portrait miniatures, photography and houses the National Art Library. The Natural History Museum has an excellent display of dinosaur remains (reconstructed) and boasts an magnificent exterior.

Although by no means a cheap area to stay or live, this area does offer a range of hotels from five star to budget - there are many beautiful small hotels in converted Victorian town houses just off the main road. You can't beat the location, within walking distance of so many attractions, as well as Hyde Park. Via the Piccadilly, District and Circle Lines you have access to all of London.
