Supercar Spotting in London
London is a city overflowing with glamour and wealth. How better to showcase this than through driving a supercar? However, driving a supercar around London should not just be for the privileged few.

Whatever the case may be, there are countless ways to appreciate these vehicles, including social media pages dedicated to spotting supercars around London. For the best chance of spotting a supercar in the flesh, head down to the following places around London and keep your eyes peeled:
This world famous department store is a renowned shopping destination for the rich and famous. Inside, you will discover supercar drivers browsing designer goods before heading back to their vehicles.

Sloane Street, Knightsbridge
Internationally recognised as one of the world’s most exclusive and luxurious shopping destinations, it is not uncommon to see supercars cruising along Sloane Street. This area even hosts its very own annual Supercar Sunday, commencing on 14th July 2019. Last year, the event saw over 500 cars, making it a haven for all supercar fanatics. Coined as the ‘biggest car meet of the summer for supercars,’ this is an event not to be missed.
The Park Tower Hotel, Knightsbridge
Situated within the heart of one of London’s most exclusive areas, The Park Tower Hotel is a prime location to spot supercars belonging to the hotel’s wealthy visitors. If you have your own supercar, why not park it amongst the others in the carpark and indulge in a spot of afternoon tea at the hotel? With tea, cakes, scones and champagne, the Park Tower Hotel is home to the best afternoon tea in London.
The Dorchester, Mayfair
As one of the most prestigious hotels in London, you are likely to spot a range of Lamborghinis and Rolls-Royces belonging to the guests parked out.

Kensington Palace Gardens
This upscale neighbourhood has some of the most expensive properties in London (with the average being £35 million). With expensive property often comes expensive cars. If you are a supercar lover, why not take a gentle stroll along this street and admire the stunning property whilst you are there.
