Description:
Knutsford Terrace ( 諾士佛台) is a terrace street in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon in Hong Kong. It is famous for its bars, pubs and restaurants.

On the south slope of Observatory Hill, it is hidden behind the buildings of Kimberley Road. The street is strictly for pedestrians. Instead of vehicles, it is full of tables and chairs for the restaurants.

There is road access to the terrace near Miramar Shopping Centre and further road access from Observatory Road.

History

Before the construction of Knutsford Terrace, the slope consisted of gardens north of Kimberley Road. Starting from 1875, Kowloon Land and Building Company bought the land lots piece by piece and completed its purchases in 1888. The terrace was possibly built in 1895 with a row of sixteen small villas. It was then accessible from Observatory Road. Below the terrace were communal gardens with a tennis court on Kimberley Road. An access path was built to the terrace.

In 1923, the premises was sold to Wong's family and more houses were built on the garden along Kimberley Road. When the premises were sold house by house in the 1950s and 60s, they were quickly replaced with multi-storey buildings.

In mid to late 20th century, two middle schools chose to set up branches in Knutsford Terrace - Wellington College (威靈頓書院) and Mansfield College (格致書院). They no longer exist.

Restaurants

Restaurants on the street offer a variety of national dishes, such as Turkish, Russian and Japanese.
