Albert Gate is a small conservation area set on the busy thoroughfare of Knightsbridge, which provides a gateway to Hyde Park.
The area has a mixed character but is dominated by late Victorian buildings of metropolitan scale, built in red brick with stone and faience dressings. Earlier development includes the two classical stuccoed Palazzo-style blocks which flank Albert Gate, at the centre of the conservation area. These were designed by Thomas Cubitt in 1840. The conservation area borders Hyde Park and there are expansive views looking north out of the area and across the park.
Albert Gate was designated as a conservation area in January 1989. A conservation area audit for the area was adopted in 2008.
