Knightsbridge, UK - London, Home of Benjamin
Knightsbridge is an exclusive residential and retail district in West London, south of Hyde Park. It is identified in the London Plan as one of two international retail centers in London, alongside the West End.
It's 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.
From streets and cafes to squares and gardens, this London neighborhood is a great place to explore. And an easy one, too. Its diminutive size makes it manageable to get around, from the border with South Kensington to the boundary with Belgravia. Knightsbridge is bordered on the north by Kensington Gardens, on the east by Belgravia, on the south by Brompton, and on the west by Kensington.
Some notable museums in the area are the Science Museum, one of London’s most major tourist attractions, The Brompton Oratory a neoclassical Roman Catholic church. The stunning interior is a must-see for anyone with an interest in Italian Renaissance architecture, while the famous choir also holds regular performances. Chelsea Physics Garden, originally founded as apothecary garden in 1673, has grown over the years to include highlights such as the largest fruiting olive tree in the UK, a pharmaceutical garden, and tropical greenhouses.

For this set of ratings, we have asked every Untour staff person who has seen the apartment to rate the individual features. Many of these staff people have been in a position to hear reports (good and bad) from customers over the years, so they offer a particularly well-informed perspective. Nevertheless, customer ratings will be included in the overall ratings as soon as possible.
