The bright lights of Knightsbridge and Belgravia attract tourists from around the world as well as Londoners with a bit of spare dollar to spend come payday. And spend it you shall, on exotic items buried deep within Harrods or stylish new threads from Harvey Nics. If you’re not interested in treading the floors of these world-renowned superstores, how about a tour of some of London’s finest museums, all conveniently found on one thoroughfare. After all that time on your feet, a slap-up dinner in one of Knightsbridge’s swanky restaurants is in order – you’ve been warned about the price tag, though. The hotels here are similarly prestigious, and just as likely to leave a hefty dent on your bank balance.
