July 29, 2011 - PRLog -- The area of Kensington and Chelsea lies directly to the west of Westminster, the very heart of London and to the east of Hammersmith and Fulham, another central and prestigious location. It was in 1965 that the borough was created. Previously there had been a borough called Kensington, and a borough called Chelsea. When the new, joint borough was formed it was awarded royal status. The name of the new borough was initially going to be just Kensington, but the inclusion of Chelsea received much support from the locals in the area.

Kensington and Chelsea is home to a number of important museums and universities as well as a range of tourist attractions in London. A Kensington or Chelsea address is extremely prestigious making it a popular office location.

Knightsbridge is in fact a road and a district that lies in the very centre of London. Initially Knightsbridge was a small hamlet or locality that was actually outside the city of London which lay between Chelsea and Kensington villages. It is an extremely exclusive part of London with some of the very highest property prices in the whole of the UK. In February 2007 a Qatari prince bought an off plan apartment at One Hyde Park for £100 million. Knightsbridge road runs along the south side of Hyde Park spanning Westminister and Kensington and Chelsea.

Harrods and Harvey Nicholls can both be found in Knightsbridge as can a range of other exclusive commercial outlets. It is the home for many of the flagship stores for British and International fashion house such as Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blahnik Many up market restaurants, salons and bars can also be found here. Despite it’s central, urban location, Knightsbridge is in fact extremely green with many leafy streets and parks. It is certainly a beautiful part of London in which to either work or live. As you can imagine property in these areas is extremely exclusive and often only the rich and famous can afford it. Knightsbridge has some of the highest property prices in the world.

West London is famous for these two incredibly affluent areas. If you’re ever in the capital, it is well worth taking the time to soak the up the atmosphere.
