Knightsbridge is a street and district in the City of Westminster, London, notable for its expensive shops, including Harrods, and as a prime residential area with some of the highest property prices in London and the world. It is one of two international centers identified in the London Plan.
It is recorded that the citizens of London met Queen Matilda at the Knight's Bridge in 1141. The bridge became the name of the area and the coined word "Knightsbridge" has the most consecutive consonants (6) out of any word in the English language.
