Knightsbrige is one of the most unchanged, attractive areas of central London, with little in the way of offices nearby but plenty of shops and restaurants to serve the needs of local residents. There are plenty of ways to spend money in this beguiling corner of the capital.

Harrods is the most famous of the local shops with over 300 departments. However, locals much prefer Harvey Nichols, a chic alternative with three floors of designer wear, a huge beauty department and delectable delicacies on the fifth floor, all at extremely high prices.

If you have the money to spend and want some designer clothes, look no further than Sloane Street. Dior, Chanel, Prada, Gucci & Nicole Fahri are all within doors of each other. There are also a number of exquisite specialist lingerie stores including Rigby & Peller and La Perla.

Finally, for home improvements on the Fulham Road, check out the Conran Shop, Divertimenti & Jerry's Home Store.
