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).
Really really rich people, from different countries. Expect to see a lot of fancy cars and fancier people. It's where the world's wealthy make their home.
The Science Museum, Royal Albert Hall, Natural History Museum and the V&A.
Window shopping at Harrods or Harvey Nics (but as a student you might not be buying much).
Rich and exclusive and traditionally for the 0.1%, Knightsbridge attracts tourists and Londoners alike to Hyde Park and it's flash shops and restaurants.
London is a city where you will never run out of things to do. The capital of England is well known for its famous, iconic landmarks such as the Big Ben, St. Paul’s cathedral, amongst thousands and thousands more. Then there’s the British cultural heritage, best displayed by its impressive architecture and the huge museums.
However, we know that students also care a lot about a city’s nightlife and atmosphere. This city never sleeps! Pubs, bars, clubs, warehouse afterparties, you name it: London has it all.
