Belmont is named after the mound, constructed in the early 18th century by Henry James Brydges - Earl of Carnarvon and first Duke of Chandos. He had a summer house built atop the mound for the wonderful view. The mound, or mount, is now the Stanmore Golf Course.

Belmont is a suburban residential district and was formerly served by Belmont station, on a railway single-line branch running from Harrow & Wealdstone station to Stanmore Village railway station. The line was known locally as The Rattler. The site of the station is now a car park. What may remain of the platform and track lies beneath tons of earth and rubble used to bring the car park up to street level.

Belmont Circle provides the main focus of the area, being a large, circular parade of shops that intersects Kenton Lane.

It is the "great glass elevator" that will whisk visitors to the top of a chimney at Battersea Power Station where sulphurous fumes once belched out over London.
