Knightsbridge & Belgravia


Arguably London’s most prestigious area and it is easy to see why. This striking neighbourhood is brimming with the world’s most exclusive shops including the world-renowned Harrods and Harvey Nichols together with some of the finest restaurants in London. The grandeur of the area is epitomised by impressive architecture; Victorian mansion blocks and white stucco fronted houses surrounding perfectly manicured garden squares as well as charming rows of townhouses to the north and the south of the area.

Unlike Kensington and Chelsea, Knightsbridge and Belgravia do not in fact have a village history, being largely uninhabited in the 17th and 18th centuries. Until the 1700s the area was notoriously dangerous after nightfall with gruesome tales of the brutal robbers and highwaymen that haunted the area.

However, after George III took up occupancy at Buckingham Palace, the area underwent a rapid change. Grosvenor Place was the first development and in the 1820’s Thomas Cubitt designed an estate for the 2nd Marquess of Westminster with the majority of Belgravia being developed in the following 30 years.

From the start of its development, the area has been almost exclusively occupied by well-heeled residents including Mozart, Thomas Cubitt and Mary Shelley. Today Knightsbridge and Belgravia remains one of the world’s most popular residential areas for the rich and famous.
