Knightsbridge is one of only two International Centres designated in the Mayor’s London Plan. We greatly value our Arab consumers and we are dedicated to our status as a global retail destination. We provided postcards for the event’s gift bags, featuring commissioned illustrations of Knightsbridge, which encouraged guests to explore our area’s offering.
Despite the Chancellor’s disappointing Spring Budget announcement on Wednesday, we remain committed to the reinstatement of VAT-free shopping for international visitors, as well as the re-evaluation of Sunday trading hours in Knightsbridge, in order to entice inbound tourism to our area.
