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

"Sanitary pioneer, Thomas Crapper opened his first shop at 120 Kings Road in 1907. Ever the shrewd businessman, he installed large plate glass to show off his wares to the passing punters, but this proved too much for many ladies who fainted at the site of so many toilet bowls!"

The handsome red brick buildings in Knightsbridge heighten the area's character and elegance.

SW3 quote

Connecting Battersea and Chelsea, you can look out from Battersea Bridge towards desirable Chelsea Embankment.
