The 10 Best Things to do in Knightsbridge, England

May 18, 2022 Velvet Champine

The crown jewels, Buckingham Palace, Camden Market…in London, history collides with art, fashion, food, and good British ale. A perfect day is different for everyone: culture aficionados shouldn't miss the Tate Modern and the Royal Opera House. If you love fashion, Oxford Street has shopping galore. For foodies, cream tea at Harrod’s or crispy fish from a proper chippy offers classic London flavor. Music and book buffs will love seeing Abbey Road and the Sherlock Holmes Museum (at 221B Baker Street, of course).

V&A  - Victoria and Albert Museum

The world's greatest museum of art and design.The V&A's collections are unrivalled in their diversity. Explore historical and contemporary art and design, including works of art from many of the world's richest cultures. Admission free.

Reviewed By TalDarkLeanMean - Staines, United Kingdom

The holy trinity of all museums. The V&A, Natural History and the Science Museum. Not in particular order but in one place. Named after the Royal love birds and power couple of arts & culture, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. In fact the whole area is littered with their legacy. There's Royal Albert Hall, Albert Memorial, Imperial College and God knows what else. It's really a bad idea to to give yourself overdose and kill three birds with one stone (see all three in one visit) unless you're in London for a day or so otherwise you'll neither be doing justice to these wonderful places nor to yourself. Just to give you an idea in a nutshell that what this beautiful building holds inside, There are sculptures, textiles, photography, paintings, jewelry, fashion, music instruments, poetry, metalwork, woodwork, furniture, books, architecture and my personal favorite, ceramic and glass section. One lifetime is not enough to see all that.

Bonham's

Fine Art Auctioneers handling more than 70 categories of specialist auctions.

Reviewed By 227ianc - London, United Kingdom

Bonham's has two locations - its smaller and more specialist one in Knightsbridge and its HQ in Bond Street, with contemporary interiors created inside the old historic facades, which holds a variety of different auctions from classic cars to contemporary art, so it is always worth keeping an eye open to see what is on. In March, before the doors closed due to the current health crisis, with most immediate sales postponed, there were two major auctions, one of modern and contemporary art with a wide range of work including Wilfredo Lam from Cuba, and another of modern and contemporary African work, at quite affordable prices if you were thinking of starting to build a collection and showing the versatility of African artists as they span traditional, modern and contemporary themes. Several of the artworks were being auctioned to benefit two charities, and the whole exhibition provided a fascinating overview of recent African art, relatively unknown to London audiences.

Albert Memorial

This gigantic bejeweled shrine protects the gilt bronze sculpture of Queen Victoria's husband, Prince Albert, which was designed and executed after the Prince Consort's death in 1861.

Reviewed By lpMaggi713 - Baltimore, United States

The love that Queen Victoria had for Prince Albert was enormous, as evidenced by the large memorial she commissioned in his memory. Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha died of typhoid in 1861 at the age of 42. The Albert Memorial sits across from the Royal Albert Hall. It is in Kensington Gardens, which is one of London’s most famous gardens. It was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott in the Gothic revival style and was completed in 1876, fifteen years after Prince Albert died. It was refurbished between 1994 and 1998 and the Prince Albert statue was re-gilded. The closest Tube stations are High Street Kensington or South Kensington.

The London Oratory

Reviewed By Windowseatview - London, United Kingdom

Impressive Baroque pastiche church which houses an equally impressive pastiche community of allegedly secular priests. Much posing and posturing on the "traditional Latin" front. Homilies will warn you about the "Demon of tolerance" and "the derangement of transgender". Very odd parish boundaries consisting of two quarters Hyde Park, one quarter Museums, universities, luxury shops and Harrods and one quarter of part time occupied, foreign owned and largely absentee, residential. All you really need to know to get the measure of this place is that here the clerics wash each others' feet on Maundy Thursday. Wonderful choir nevertheless.

Apsley House

Apsley House is internationally famous as the home of the 1st Duke of Wellington and his descendants. As such it is also a memorial to Britain’s triumph over the Napoleonic threat. It is also significant as a restored historic house, a celebration of Regency style, a museum commemorating the 1st Duke and the home of an outstanding collection of decorative and fine art. Perhaps the most important aspect of the interiors at Apsley House is the magnificent collection of fine and decorative arts, formerly part of the collections of the 1st Duke of Wellington. Over 3,000 fine paintings, sculptures, and works or art fashioned in silver, porcelain, porphyry, batons, swords and orders, given to Britain’s greatest military hero by grateful emperors, tsars and kings, are on display. Most notable are: Sculptures by Canova, including the statue of Napoleon originally commissioned from the Italian sculptor by Napoleon himself & paintings acquired by the 1st Duke from the Spanish royal collection.

Reviewed By 227ianc - London, United Kingdom

It's a strange contradiction that Apsley House has a prominent location on Hyde Park Corner that many drivers pass everyday, yet it is relatively unknown for the architectural quality of its interiors and for its impressive art collection, naturally with a strong focus on the 1st Duke of Wellington, but there are portraits here of his successors, including the current Duke. Apsley House is one of the last historic aristocratic London homes remaining in London, with the house built by Robert Adam from 1771-76 for Lord Apsley, hence its name, and further altered and extended by Benjamin Wyatt for the 1st Duke of Wellington in the early 19th century. The art collection is strong in Italian, Dutch and Spanish art and there are many historic items gifted by royal families across Europe after his defeat of Napoleon, so don't miss the Museum with its superb collection. It was good to visit and be reminded of the scale of what there is to see after the recent re-opening. For a full appreciation of the 1st Duke's achievements, you should combine your visit with one to Wellington Arch and also admire the statue of Wellington on his horse Copenhagen and then go to see the memorial statue 'Achilles'. He was a real hero of the time...
