Why not explore the nearby areas of Sloane Square, Chelsea, South Kensington, Knightsbridge, Nine Elms, Battersea, Pimlico, Victoria, Imperial Wharf and Earls Court

"The River Westbourne is one of the River Thames' many tributaries and now flows through an underground pipe owing to the development of the land over it. At Sloane Square Underground Station, there is evidence of its existence where the pipe is exposed above the platform."
