Belgravia is an affluent area of Westminster, north of Victoria Station.
Belgravia - known as Five Fields during the Middle Ages - was developed in the early 19th century by Richard Grosvenor, 2nd Marquess of Westminster.
The area had begun to be built up after George III moved to Buckingham House (now Buckingham Palace) and constructed a row of houses on what is now Grosvenor Place. In the 1820s, Richard Grosvenor asked Thomas Cubitt to design numerous grand terraces centred on squares. Most of Belgravia was constructed over the next 30 years.
Belgravia has many grand terraces of white stucco houses, and is focused on two squares: Belgrave Square and Eaton Square
Much of Belgravia is still owned by the Duke of Westminster’s Grosvenor Group.
