Monday - Consider focusing on: Harrods where you can spend as little or
as much time as you want. The
Knightsbridge area - for those interested
in antiques/decorative arts and interior design,
The General Trading
Company
, just off Sloane Square, is a stylish shop, where the late Princess
of Wales had her wedding list. The shop holds four Royal Warrants and is
one of only six other companies in the country to do so. Sloane Square has
a more neighborly feel than some parts of London, with a church, dry-
cleaners and smart apartment blocks. The well-bred, well-heeled young
ladies who live and shop here were dubbed “
Sloane Rangers” some years
ago and this nickname has stuck.
Pimlico Road at the lower end of Sloane
Street also has many antique and interior design shops.
Beauchamp
Place
is a pretty shopping street a few roads to the west of Harrods. Lots
of little shops, one of which specializes in old prints. This leads into
Walton
Street
, full of boutiques, specializing in jewellery, antiques and interior
design.
Nina Campbell, Britain’s well-known interior designer, has a lovely
home and gift shop here. (B)
