Why not explore the nearby areas of Sloane Square, Pimlico, Mayfair, Knightsbridge, Westminster, West End, Soho, Nine Elms, Vauxhall and Covent Garden

"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."

Sloane Square is definitely the place to go if you're looking for both upmarket boutiques and high street stores in one area.
