Knightsbridge is rich. Very rich. You won't fail to notice. This is the home of legendary Harrods and Harvey Nichols, so official shopping paradise for rich tourists in London - and great grounds to go window-shopping for everybody else. This is a part of the richest side of London, close to other fancy neighbourhoods like Belgravia, Pimlico, Chelsea and Hyde Park. It’s a residential and expensive shopping destination.
Prices and rents here are higher than most of London. You'll struggle to find anything particularly affordable. The properties facing the park are mostly large, mansions and further away you’ll find smaller buildings along pretty terraced streets.
There are campuses of the Royal College of Art or Imperial College in Knightsbridge itself, which is connected by the Piccadilly Line right into the centre of the city. This makes it a great option for any central university such as SOAS, The University of London, The University of Westminster, City University, or LSE. Knightsbridge is connected to the wider city by Knightsbridge (Piccadilly) or Hyde Park Corner (Piccadilly).
