Knightsbridge is best known for Harrods and Harvey Nichols department stores. When you leave the tube, you can take a pedestrian tunnel that goes from the platform directly to Harrods' entrance, or you can use the other exit for Sloane Street and Harvey Nichols. Most of the big-name fashions designers can be found on Sloane Street, but if you prefer equally elegant shops on a smaller scale, head for Beauchamp Place and Walton Street

Harrods is a high-end department store located in Brompton Road in Brompton, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London. The Harrods brand also applies to other enterprises undertaken by the Harrods group of companies including Harrods Bank, Harrods Estates, Harrods Aviation and Air Harrods, and to Harrods Buenos Aires, sold by Harrods in 1922 and closed as of 2011, with plans announced to reopen in 2013.

The store occupies a 5-acre (20,000 m2) site and has over one million square feet (90,000 m2) of selling space in over 330 departments. The UK's second-biggest shop, Oxford Street's Selfridges, is a little over half the size with 540,000 square feet (50,000 m2) of selling space.
