Why Move to Belgravia?
There is no getting around the fact that Belgravia is one of the most privileged and affluent areas of London as well as being one of the most exclusive districts in the world.
Covering parts of the areas of both the City of Westminster and the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, it is a beautiful well-to-do neighbourhood which offers the lucky few who can afford to live here an enviable lifestyle.
Developed in a large part by Thomas Cubbitt, master builder, from the 1820’s under the leadership of the Marquis of Westminster, much of the area of Belgravia is still owned by the family today.
Once upon a time, Belgravia was known as the ‘Five Fields’ during the Tudor Period, back then it was just a series of fields used for grazing, intersected by footpaths, and became a dangerous place due to highwaymen and robberies.
These days it is much safer, and the area is typically characterised by grand terraces of white stucco houses focused on Belgrave Square and Eaton Square. It was one of London’s most fashionable residential districts from its beginnings as it is still today.
Although Belgravia attracts wealthy people from all walks of life, families in particular love the area because it is so secure, beautiful and has a really quaint almost village like feel.
Shopping in Tiffany’s or Cartier, eating out at one of four Michelin starred restaurants, a 5* OFSTED rated primary school, a stunning park and no less than five nearby tube stations make it a real winner.
If that is not enough, wedged between Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, and Victoria Station, it is incredibly conveniently located for travel by tube, overground trains, bus, taxi or bicycle.
Belgravia really is a hub all on its own within London. The amazing location, atmosphere, facilities, and community, as well as its proximity to Central London, make it a prime area to move to if you want (or can afford) to live somewhere very exclusive.
Belgravia Schools & Education
There is a huge choice of very good schools, mostly private, both within the catchment area of Belgravia and the wider borough.
Schools located in Belgravia are St Peter’s Primary School, Eaton House, Francis Holland School, Hill House and Garden House School. Each has an exemplary exam results and renowned reputations.
Older students have access to a great many colleges and universities which are well within either walking distance or a short tube or bus ride away.
The Strand campus of King’s College London is located within the district and the University of Westminster has its three campuses in the borough.
The northern half of Imperial College London’s main South Kensington campus lies within the borough.
There is no doubt that the level of education provision in Belgravia is of the highest order.
Things to do in Belgravia.
Belgravia might be slap bang in the middle of central London, but it is blessed with some very large open spaces nearby. In fact, Belgravia will surprise you with just how much opportunity there is to enjoy the outdoors.
Hyde Park, the largest of the 8 Royal Parks is not far away, and the Belgrave Square Garden, Belgravia’s green and leafy centrepiece lined with mature trees and featuring gravel walks, a tennis court and statues is a popular place to visit.
If you want to shop, there is also plenty of opportunity to do exactly that. Antique shops, chic furniture stores, and trendy galleries cluster on Pimlico Road, with designer fashion and jewellery boutiques everywhere.
If you fancy an alternative to Oxford Street, head to Motcomb Street, a hidden treasure in the centre of beautiful Belgravia. Filled with boutique and luxury shopping opportunities it has just been pedestrianised so you can meander from shop to shop without risking your life crossing any busy roads.
For a Michelin Starred experience, fine-dining restaurants dot the neighbourhood. The Mandarin Oriental and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay are both the proud winners of Michelin stars.
Plus, there are all sorts of sophisticated cafes which cater to the area’s wealthy international residents, many have alfresco dining areas, perfect for a bit of celebrity spotting.
If your budget is rather more conservative, fear not. There are some great places to eat and drink which are not going to mean you have to re-mortgage the house.
The Orange Public House and Hotel and The Blue Bar are ideal spots to grab a high quality, but very reasonably priced meal.
Being in central London, Belgravia is right in the centre of all that our diverse capital city has to offer when it comes to the entertainment stakes.
Belgravia does have its own look, and style, with the white townhouses being the most iconic visual part of the entire area.
Whilst some homes are still intact in their original designs. Many of these wonderful buildings have over the years, been divided up and converted into large attractive flats for residential use.

Head to Gatliff Road where you will find the newly built Wood House apartments offering a range of schemes which are specifically designed to help local people to get onto the property ladder.
Rental properties are highly sought after in general, and do not regularly come up because the area is so exclusive, but you can expect to pay between £3100 – £5000 pcm for a one- or two-bedroom property.
