Guests choosing to stay in the luxury surroundings of The Capital Hotel, Apartments & Townhouse in Knightsbridge are just moments from some of our favourite autumnal activities and shopping destinations. 


Just a five-minute stroll away from The Capital, Hyde Park is the largest of the four royal parks around London and looks particularly striking during autumn months. The over 4000 trees in this royal park include beech, pine and sweet chestnuts that put on a lovely display of autumn colours. A little further north, Hampstead Heath is perfect for a walk through the woods with atmospheric woodland areas, sprawling meadows and hidden ponds as the setting for a romantic wander. 


After all this outdoor activity, you’re sure to have worked up an appetite. Quaint pubs are in no short supply in London, so keep an eye out for an open fire, historic architecture, traditional roasts and artisan draught beers. Some nearby favourites include the authentically Victorian The Bunch of Grapes, reportedly The Duke of Wellington’s local The Grenadier and The Star Tavern. Make your way back to your London accommodation at The Capital where afternoon tea is served daily. Serving a delightful selection of teas, infusions and cocktails which are perfectly accompanied by the handmade sweet treats, scones and traditional savoury delights. For something a little stronger to warm your sore feet, sample some of the impressive selection of whiskies at the theatrical and intimate Capital Bar. Alternatively, browse our extensive bar menu as there is always a drink to satisfy and delight everyone’s preferences.  


Talking of Harrods, why not get a head start on your festive shopping while staying in the heart of Knightsbridge? In addition to the six floors of retail heaven at our iconic neighbour Harrods, you can find luxury department store Harvey Nichols and the international brand flagship shops of Sloane Street within an easy walking distance.  Brompton Road, the King’s Road and historic Beauchamp Place all offer a myriad of opportunities to treat yourself and your loved ones with independent boutiques, antique dealers and bespoke tailors.
