An impression of Grandeur coming from Belgravia
05 December 2015
Belgravia is a district of London that is home to some of the grandest architecture in the city. Lying just South West of Buckingham Palace, this classy area is dominated with grand terraced white Stucco houses, magnificent squares and immaculate streets.
This West London district is one of the richest not just in London but in the whole world. Most of the property is still owned by the Grosvenor Estate which work on behalf of the Grosvenor family who have owned the area since the 18th century. The properties and rooms to rent in Belgravia are among the best in terms of location.
Here, you will find many of the worlds embassies and world renown designers who have their flagship stores located in the heart of Belgravia. As you walk around, it has a much quieter feel almost like a village compared to the more bustling areas nearby such as Knightsbridge or Chelsea. However, spending time here you begin to see what really is under its shell.
Coming here you have to visit the many grand squares that dominate the area. Walking along the road following the houses of Belgrave Square is worth a sight to witness arguably the most grandest residential houses built in the whole of this great city, which is some achievement.
Looking for things to do other than admiring all of Belgravia’s magnificent buildings? The Punchbowl will always be recommended and it was once owned by the director Guy Ritchie, who was behind Lock Stock and the recent Sherlock Holmes films. The pub serves brilliant ales, single malt whiskies and classic British food like fish and chips to a stunning level. They also have a dining room above which caters for fine dining British dishes and has a proper wine list put together by wine master Tim Atkin. Sloane Square is worth a look and you will find the 950 seater Cadogan halls based here, where you can listen to only the best in classical and jazz music.
Belgravia is one of the classiest, original and grand areas of London. There isn’t much more you can say that can top that.
