Knightsbridge

Opulence emanates from the marble foyers of Knightsbridge's banks, lounges, and famous department stores.

Exclusivity reigns in Knightsbridge, an epicenter of prestigious vocations and inimitable style. Its towering, columned edifices are home to renowned department stores like Harrods, couture fashion houses like Jimmy Choo, and banks that handle finances for the Queen. Perhaps there’s more to Knightsbridge than its posh digs and bevy of swanky, velvet-roped restaurants, but when a neighborhood is as top-tier as this one is, no one seems to notice.
