What on earth do you think would give a region a name such as Knightsbridge? Well, if we had to venture a guess, we’d say that it had something to do with a knight and maybe a bridge. And if we actually look into the history of the region, researchers say that the name actually comes from the fact that young knights would duel at the mouth of the resident bridge. Whatever the reason for the name (and there are several theories), a lot has changed since the medieval times and these days, Knightsbridge has become a bustling community of culture and lifestyle.
What is there to do here?
If you don’t like the thought of walking up and down an ancient (and heavily renovated bridge), then the chances are that you might be keen to learn about other enjoyable activities that can be done here. Thankfully there is a lot to choose from; such as a quick visit to the world-famous Hyde Park, where a single apartment recently sold for more than £100 million, or the famous high street that plays host to well-known department stores such as Harrods.
Getting around is easy as well, with a regular bus service that operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (with reduced services during bank holidays). If you are planning on hiring your own car and driving it might be worth looking into the congestion charge zones, or you could simply take a cab and enjoy relaxing while you are driven to where you want to be.
And where might you want to be?
At any one of the reputable salons, of course! Beauty salons, hair care centres and day spas call this region their home and although some require advanced bookings, the majority are happy to accept walk-in appointments instead. When we say there are a lot to choose from, we genuinely mean it. That’s actually why we encourage our viewers to check out our listings.
