Knightsbridge is one of the most exclusive retail areas of London where those with large fortunes visit to purchase those things that most people could never even dream of owning. Our own Knightsbridge escorts love to spend the day shopping in this part of west London as they can always find those excusive outfits and intimate items that always make a statement. Knightsbridge was not always as exclusive or quite so commercial. It started life as a small hamlet with no known boundaries however the name is said to have come about due to a local legend that two knights fought a duel on the bridge over the river Westbourne. Sir Knyvett was said to have slain his attacker and the story created the tale which was spread throughout the land.
Knightsbridge is not known for its extensive crime however from the middle ages to the 16th century the wide-open spaces were perfect for highwaymen and robbers to attack those approaching the city walls. It was only the development of the land in the 17th century that reversed its fortunes. Kings and Queens of the time were in the habit of handing out large swathes of land to their favoured lords and many were gifted portions of Knightsbridge, Chelsea and Kensington. Rather than farm them, these entrepreneurial lords decided to develop them, building large mansion houses for their wealthy friends and so these exclusive London enclaves developed. The highwaymen were pushed back further from the city until eventually they simply ceased to exist. These mansion houses still exist today although they have been converted into beautiful spacious apartments. Many of our Knightsbridge have spent time in these buildings with their gentlemen companions and the ones which overlook Hyde Park are especially sought after.
Knightsbridge has continued to increase in price as demand for the limited properties has risen. For the most part, much of the existing property stock is now owned by Middle Eastern Millionaires and Arab royalty and in the summer months the area is filled with breath taking supercars belonging to the sons of these fabulously wealthy families. The tabloid media is often full of stories of the expensive cars being discarded in car parks once their owners become bored with them and it is this short attention span that means our Knightsbridge escorts always get to spend time with a variety of different companions. Knightsbridge is something of a façade. In the summer months the properties are opened up for their owners to visit and in the winter months, the area is extremely quiet and something of a ghost town. Our escorts in Knightsbridge refer to these busy months as ‘the season’ much like the debutants of the 18th century when the parties and balls were in full swing in the area. For the rest of the year, Knightsbridge is a place for tourists to visit and for shoppers to covet the items in the window displays. Our very own escorts Knightsbridge regularly enjoy visiting Harrods, the well-known shopping emporium, although it is best enjoyed without the crowds.
