This apartment is in a fantastic position in the heart of affluent Central/West London. Belgravia is an area known for its luxury shops and spas. Sloane Square, in upmarket Chelsea, is only an 8 minute walk away and is home to many designer outlets including Hugo Boss and Tiffany’s. Sloane Street which runs off this Square also has many more high end brands.
The famous King’s Road in Chelsea begins at Sloane Square and runs West. There is a huge array of popular restaurants, trendy bars, cafes and boutique shops to explore along this street. There is also the Saatchi Gallery, a few supermarkets and a cinema along this stretch too. The nearby area of Knightsbridge, just a short taxi or bus ride away, is home to department stores Harrods and Harvey Nichols and a stroll from these is Heston Blumenthal’s restaurant.
The closest tube station is Victoria, a 7 minute walk away which joins the Victoria, Circle and District lines. From here it is only 2 stops (5 minutes) from Oxford Street and a 10 minute journey to Leicester Square for the West End and the theatre scene. It will take you less than 15 minutes to get to Covent Garden for the markets and upmarket shops too.
Sloane Square is also on the Circle and District lines and is an 8 minute walk from the flat. From there it is only 1 stop to South Kensington for the museums – Natural History, Victoria & Albert and Science Museums.
