We had limited time so took the highlights tour with a guide. It was a great way to see the key exhibits and learned a lot that we would have known without the guide.

Some gorgeous dresses on display. However a lot of the signage is poor, with words and letters that had fallen off, had melted or had been picked off, making it hard to read a lot of the displays. For such expensive tickets, I would have...More

When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop,
they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined
tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And
when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already
got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the
perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion
walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the
ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this
