Dotted with spectacular sights and legendary landmarks, London is humming with tourists all year round. While areas such as Chelsea and Mayfair are famed for their elegant charm and high-end character, there are some parts of the city that are even more sought-after.
Kensington & Knightsbridge are home to some of the most upmarket shopping areas around and some of the most luxury apartments in London. It’s in this area that one of our favourite apartments are found – the Hyde Park Gate Apartments. Blending charming, modern interiors with a host of historic surroundings, these luxury apartments in London are fantastically located and offer unparalleled views across Hyde Park.
Behind the Property
Opened in 2016 by our partners over at Buckingham & Lloyds, a provider of luxury apartments in London, the Hyde Park Gate Apartments have been dazzling city visitors for a number of years already.
Founder, Sam Ibgi, has said: “Our aim is to offer the very highest standard of accommodation in one of the most sought after areas in London.”
The apartments on offer come in all shapes and sizes and cater to solo travellers, couples, larger groups and families, making them some of the most luxury apartments in London.
When it comes to interior design, the Hyde Park Gate Apartments are second to none. Stunning white interiors are eloquently juxtaposed against a huge host of contemporary furnishings and ornate decorations.
All kitchen areas are fully-equipped with an array of modern appliances including a washer dryer and a coffee machine. Bathrooms are charmingly ornate and bedrooms feature king-size or double beds.
Stunning Outdoor Areas
Anyone who knows London well will understand how essential a balcony or private garden is during the warmer summer months. All of the Hyde Park Gate Apartments include an outdoor area, whether it’s a terrace, garden or balcony.
Offering great views across Hyde Park, these outdoor spaces provide an ideal spot to enjoy breakfast, have an evening drink or just to soak in the sun and relax.
In addition to tastefully furnished interiors, these luxury apartments in London also provide guests with a number of additional services.
Reception services (from 09:00 – 21:00) ensure all guests will have a point of contact available on-site during the day. Buckingham & Lloyd also offer a high-end personal concierge service, which provides guests with a strong level of support at most times in the day.
A complimentary welcome pack is supplied upon arrival and daily housekeeping ensures all apartments are consistently kept to the highest possible standard.
High-end Shopping in Knightsbridge
One of the many benefits of the Hyde Park Gate Apartments is their close proximity to some of London’s most exclusive retail areas. Kensington High Street is fairly high-profile in its own right, but Knightsbridge is in a league of its own.
Harrods, the UK’s most iconic department store, is no more than a mile away and offers everything from exotic teas to high-end accessories and upmarket tailoring.
In addition to Harrods, Knightsbridge is also home to Harvey Nichols and the nearby Sloane Square is dotted with a number of designer stores.

The Hyde Park Gate Apartments are surrounded on all sides by esteemed London landmarks. Hyde Park and Kensington Palace are just a short step away and the Royal Albert Hall is no more than a five-minute walk away.
These luxury apartments in London are also within easy walking distance to the city’s renowned museum district. The Natural History Museum, the V&A and the Science Museum are all within easy reach and are the ideal way to get off the busy city streets.
Transport in London
