Revitalising the Underground in Knightsbridge

Insights, News

The remodelled underground station will enhance Knightsbridge’s connections with London and beyond

Used by millions of passengers each year, Knightsbridge Underground Station continues to provide unparalleled transport connections for residents and visitors, who benefit from the station’s direct connections via the Piccadilly Line to Heathrow Airport, City Airport, Kings Cross Station and St Pancras for the Eurostar.

With the future in mind, The Knightsbridge Estate has planned significant improvements to the existing Knightsbridge Underground Station and its entrances, working closely with Transport for London. This move supports the Mayor of London’s pledge to make London’s transport network more accessible and TfL’s commitment to make more than 30 additional tube stations step-free by 2021/2022.

A new access to Knightsbridge Underground Station is being created at 15 Brompton Road with a further new entrance on Hooper’s Court that will provide step-free access – for the first time – via two 17-person lifts. On-platform cooling systems will improve and enhance the overall travel experience for residents and visitors alike. In addition, the pavement on Brompton Road and Sloane Street has been widened to help ease pedestrian congestion and improve the streetscape along the retail frontages. The enhanced station entrance is designed to benefit the new tenants of One Hooper’s Court, The Estate’s new state-of-the-art office development.
