Area guide: Belgravia - London

Check out office to rent in the area

Few places in London conjure up the image of wealth, elegance and style as much as Belgravia. The name itself has long been synonymous with rows of majestic Victorian and Edwardian townhouse, that have been the homes of some of London’s biggest foreign embassies, and an astounding list of wealthy and eminent residents past and present.

Unsurprisingly the Belgravia of today counts some truly exclusive restaurants, hotels, bars and members-only clubs, as well as some of West London’s chicest shopping, and an array of professional services for the wealthy, from banking to architecture to luxury travel agencies. Despite this exclusive nature, Belgravia is well-connected, with Victoria Station close by and the Piccadilly Line running through Knightsbridge and nearby Sloane Square.
