Sloane Street is a street in London which runs north to south, from Knightsbridge to Sloane Square, and forms the boundary between the exclusive districts of Belgravia and Chelsea. To the west of the street is Brompton at the northern half of the street, and Chelsea at the southern half. To the east of Sloane Street is Belgravia.

Sloane Street has long been a fashionable shopping street, especially the northern section, which is known informally as Upper Sloane Street. Since the 1990s Sloane Street's status has increased further, and it is now on a par with Bond Street, which has been London's most exclusive shopping street for two centuries. The street has branches of most of the world's most famous boutiques.

Sloane Street, along with Sloane Square, also gives its name to "Sloane Rangers", originally applied to a stereotypical kind of young upper class woman common in the area, but now broadened to include men of similar ilk. The expression was roughly the female equivalent to the term "Hooray Henry", used to describe a brash, upper-class young man, although this term is not geographically restricted and is used all over the UK.

Since 1990s Dubai’s Ruling Family (Al Maktoum) bought most of the properties in Sloane Street, through them National Bank of Dubai opened its first overseas branch in London. The Famous Carlton Tower Hotel is owned by the hotels arm of Dubai Holding Company, which is controlled by Sheikh Mohammed, Ruler of Dubai.

The northern half of the street is home to a few smart, more modern residential blocks, all with 24 hour porterage. The southern half of the street has much more character, with a number of typical Chelsea red brick buildings which house elegant apartments. In the most exclusive residential area off the street, which is between Sloane Gardens and Cadogan Place (on the Belgravia side), some of the residences have remained as whole houses. Prices in this area are upwards of 2000 pounds sterling per square foot with a long lease. This is the only area in Belgravia which is not comprised of Nash style buildings.
