  • Belgravia Historical Facts

    The name Belgravia comes from a subsidiary title used by the Duke of Westminster, Viscount Belgrave.

    The majority of the area belonged to Richard Grosvenor, who was the 2nd Marquess of Westminster and had the area developed in the 1820s.

    With a focus on grand terraces, it has always been one of London’s most sought after residential areas.

    Following World War 2 some of the larger Belgravia properties were no longer used for residential purposes, with professional organisations, charity headquarters and embassies taking their place, though more recently some of these have been renovated for residential use again.
