Belgravia

Esteemed conversation and high thread counts characterize this sophisticated central London neighborhood.

Belgravia is regal London dressed in its Sunday best. Classical architecture, white stucco residences, and stone churches characterize the neighborhood’s fashionably restrained streets. Its aristocratic ambiance comes at a high price, but the neighborhood’s secluded gardens and private estates are unmatched. Although its daunting refinement places Belgravia in a class of its own, the neighborhood remains close to destinations that encourage you to let loose—relax at Chelsea, Pimlico, and Westminster’s taverns and wine bars.
