  • The architectural landscape may encompass a wide range of styles and sizes.
  • Elegant period properties in the form of Victorian houses, mansion blocks, mews houses and Georgian terraces or the sprawling penthouses of elite new build developments like One Hyde Park.

Green space

Knightsbridge sits immediately to the south of Hyde Park, one of eight Royal Parks in the capital comprising 350 acres of stunning lawns, ornamental gardens, tree-lined avenues and the tranquil waters of The Serpentine, where visitors can cross the bridge into Kensington Gardens, another Royal Park. There are many lovely riverside parks in neighbouring Chelsea and to the east Buckingham Palace nestles between Green Park and St James’s Park.
