The Knightsbridge Estate, a spectacular 3.5-acre island site located between the world famous department stores Harrods and Harvey Nichols, bounded by Brompton Road to the north and Basil Street to the south, is delighted to welcome carpo to its thriving community. Carpo, and its wonderful world of high-quality hand-picked natural nuts, chocolate, and custom-blended coffee, opened the doors to its new store at 36 Hans Crescent in August and has quickly become a popular fixture for locals and visitors. Located between the popular EL&N café and sleek dining concept Crazy Pizza, carpo adds to the growing ‘foodie buzz’ on The Estate.

Meticulously restored and modernised by owner The Olayan Group, with Chelsfield as asset and development manager, carpo Knightsbridge will benefit from a range of significant improvements to The Estate’s public realm, retail offer and fabric, which have attracted higher footfall and spend to The Estate. Over the last eight years carpo has expanded within the city’s most prestigious addresses, opening popular stores on Piccadilly, Selfridges Oxford Street and Montpelier Street.

“carpo is a fantastic addition to The Knightsbridge Estate and is part of an increased F&B offering, which has seen the transformation of Hans Crescent into a vibrant spot for casual dining and relaxing.”

We look forward to sharing the passion we have for carpo and introducing this completely natural food product to visitors and residents of The Knightsbridge Estate.”
