Belgravia can be described as a pocket of prosperity – and a very big one at that – it’s one of one of the wealthiest districts in the world. Bordered to the north by its more well-known neighbour, Knightsbridge, and Buckingham Palace to the east, it’s a relatively quiet area characterised by grand Regency-style streets, palatial properties and secret garden squares. The architecture is grand and impressive, featuring a mix of stately white-stucco mansions, picturesque mews houses and embassy buildings and eclectic, one-off shops.
Belgravia’s central location, less than three minutes from London’s centre, makes it ideal for Hyde Park, the Royal Albert Hall, London’s many museums and galleries, the West End, and of course, Harrods and Harvey Nichols department stores. Wander the streets and absorb the grandeur or take advantage of the excellent transport links to explore further afield.
A Short History:
How times change: in the 17th century, Belgravia, was a desolate swamp and windswept pasture, known as the Five Fields, and a dangerous place to be avoided. The 400 acres of land was inherited by the Grosvenor family and named Belgravia after Belgrave, a village on their family estate in Leicestershire, England.
In 1825 King George IV decided to make Buckingham Palace his permanent residence and the Grosvenor family seized an opportunity by commissioning architect Thomas Cubitt to build an area of exclusive housing on this newly fashionable land. His grand classical designs survive to this day as some of the most fashionable residential property in London. Past and present Belgravia residents include historians, poets, princes, statesmen, industrialists, inventors, field marshals, scientists, actors, politicians, painters and reformers.
Today, Belgravia is considered one of the most fashionable residential areas in London and is home to A-list celebrities, the privileged and the super-rich, entrepreneurs and oil tycoons, Russian oligarchs and business magnates.
