  WHAT’S LIVING IN Knightsbridge LIKE?

For those with very fat bank accounts, Knightsbridge can be a great place to spend your time and set up a home. This is the kind of world where people have money and aren’t afraid to show it off. Maseratis and Ferraris line the streets and it wouldn’t be a shock for a Knightsbridge resident to drop thousands on a pair of shoes.

The area is mainly for those who are past their partying days because it doesn't have much of a nightlife. However, exclusive shops and restaurants make it an ideal choice for people who don’t want to settle down completely.

As you'd expect, housing here is extremely expensive. Most people tend to rent apartments, but there are grand homes available for sale here – some costing tens of millions of pounds. For the most part, people stick around once they move to this neighborhood.

The area is most notable for having two of the most famous department stores in the world, Harrods and Harvey Nichols. These two stores offer up some of the most expensive and luxurious goods in all of London. Sloan Street is another famous shopping locale that features flagship stores of designer lables like Prada and Dior. There are also some unique shops that specialize in one-of-a-kind pieces.

Tourists are attracted to this area to marvel at the opulence, so it might feel like you are on display if you do live here.

Knightsbridge is bordered on the north by Kensington Gardens, on the east by Belgravia, on the south by Brompton, and on the west by Kensington.
