The home of the famed department store Harrods, Knightsbridge is and has always been a very affluent area. Now with its many designer shops which parade their wares down the length of Sloane Street and Brompton Road and the expensive and exclusive bars, clubs and restaurants, Knightsbride and neighbouring Mayfair are certainly the places to see and be seen in. The rich and famous all make this part of SW1 their home, staying in the many multi million pound luxury residences that are dotted around this area. With Hyde Park on your doorstep there is also plenty of outside space when you want to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the busy shopping streets. Go a little way down Brompton Road where it meets Cromwell Road and you will find some of London's best Museums; The Victoria and Albert museum, the Science museum and of course the world famous Natural History museum.
