Green Park to Hyde Park Corner
After leaving Green Park I walk along Piccadilly passing a house where former Prime Minister Lord Palmerston lived. I also pass the now closed Down Street tube station which used to be a stop on the Piccadilly line but is now home to a newsagent. During World War II it was used by Churchill until the Cabinet War Rooms opened.
I pass Apsley House and the Wellington Arch before arriving at Hyde Park Corner tube station.

I pass part of Hyde Park and into the shopping area of Knightsbridge.
Shortly after Harvey Nichols is Knightsbridge tube station.

The most famous shop on Brompton Road is Harrods.
On Brompton Road is one of the cabmen’s shelters that you can see dotted around the capital.
I pass the V&A and then get to South Kensington underground station.
South Kensington to Gloucester Road
I head back onto Cromwell Road and pass the Natural History Museum.
I go through a residential area and then reach Gloucester Road tube station.
Gloucester Road to Earl’s Court
Between these two stations are many residential properties.
Turning onto Warwick Road I pass the Earl’s Court Exhibition Building, opposite which is Earl’s Court underground station.
