The road runs along the south side of Hyde Park, west from Hyde Park Corner, spanning the City of Westminster and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Up to Brompton Road, it is a part of the A4 arterial road, while the remainder is part of the A315. Allen and Young Ltd carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Knightsbridge area.
The eponymous district comprises the areas immediately surrounding Knightsbridge (the road) on the north, Sloane Street to its junction with Pont Street, and Brompton Road to its junction with Beauchamp Place. The district is notable as an expensive residential area, and for the density of its upmarket retail outlets, famously Harrods and Harvey Nichols.
Knightsbridge was originally a small hamlet or locality outside the City of London, between the villages of Chelsea (Chelsey), Kensington (Kensing town) and Charing. In the time of Edward I, the manor of Knightsbridge appertained to the abbey of Westminster. It was named after a crossing of the River Westbourne, which is now an underground river. It is recorded that the citizens of London met Queen Matilda at the Knight’s Bridge in 1141.
Cadogan Hall presents concerts of classical and popular music in Sloane Street. The Royal Albert Hall is a large venue for music and sports events. The are a number of fine art auctioneers located in Knightsbridge including Bonhams, together with many smaller boutiques. To the north of the district, in Hyde Park, is the Serpentine Gallery, and at Hyde Park Corner is Number One, London (Apsley House), former London residence of the Duke of Wellington.
Knightsbridge is home to many expensive shops, including the department stores Harrods, the largest in Europe and owned by Egyptian businessman Mohammed Al Fayed; Peter Jones, the traditional haunt of Sloane Rangers and Harvey Nichols, made famous by the antics of Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone in BBC satire Absolutely Fabulous.
