The Knightsbridge Estate is proud to unveil a brand-new entrance to Knightsbridge tube station on Brompton Road.

The location of the previous entrance, located directly on the corner of Brompton Road and Sloane Street, meant that commuters spilled out on to a narrow pavement, close to passing traffic and causing a congestion of people at busy times of day.

The new entrance is just around the corner on Brompton Road, where the pavement has been widened to create a better and safer experience for pedestrians. The entrance to the tube itself is much wider than the previous entrance, making accessing Knightsbridge tube station more comfortable for all. The new entrance has also enabled The Estate to create a seamless retail frontage at the corner of Brompton Road and Sloane Street, where the old station entrance used to be.

The new and improved access to Knightsbridge tube station is part of The Knightsbridge Estate’s continued plans to improve the public realm of The Estate. In addition to the new tube entrance and widened pavements, other improvements to the area include a revamped pedestrian walkway between Brompton Road and Basil Street, featuring a landscaped pocket garden with upgraded lighting and a botanical living wall outside the new prestigious office development, One Hooper’s Court. This improved walkway benefits the residents and the neighbourhood, as well as offering a pleasant place to rest.

Furthermore, Hooper’s Court will also see the introduction of a new step-free access to Knightsbridge underground station, supporting the Mayor of London’s pledge to add 30 more step-free stations to the tube network. This is expected to open early next year.
