Knightsbridge is home to the magnificent and world famous Harrods department store recently sold by Mohammed Al-Fayed for £1.5 billion. All around are luxury stores including Harvey Nichols and Louis Vuitton and nearby the charming Beauchamp Place and Walton Street provide yet more specialist shopping opportunities.
The area is alive with exceptional Michelin starred restaurants and many luxury Hotels including the enigmatic Mandarin Oriental, the Lanesborough and Berkeley. The residential property consists predominantly of elegant red brick Victorian and Edwardian mansion blocks, period townhouses and the notable recent addition of the super exclusive One Hyde Park apartments next to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.

The park was used for hunting by Henry VIII and as well as the magnificent trees and gardens it is home to the Diana Memorial Fountain. Hyde Park offers an extensive program of concerts and performances to suit every cultural taste.
