Take a turn off Brompton Road down the tree-lined, quiet and quaint Beaufort Gardens and you’ll find the Knightsbridge Hotel, which offers 44 Kit Kemp-designed classical London townhouse rooms away from the hustle and bustle of this shoppers’ paradise.
On the ground floor, find two drawing rooms complete with working fireplaces, libraries and British artworks, the ideal spot for afternoon tea before a visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum down the street.
