Chapel Street runs south-west to north-east from Belgrave Square to Grosvenor Place.

Chapel Street dates from 1775 and was named after a former Lock chapel here adjacent to a hospital, both now demolished. All of the short streets connecting Belgravia to Grosvenor Place - Chapel Street, Chester Street, Halkin Street and Wilton Street, predate Thomas Cubitt’s master plan for Belgravia and were built up from the late 18th century.

24 Chapel Street was home to Brian Epstein, the manager of the Beatles. He died there on 27 August 1967 of an accidental barbiturate and alcohol overdose.

Belgravia

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.
