Originally, the vast majority of Belgravia was owned by Richard Grovesnor who ensured that a substantial amount of development took place during the early to mid 19th century. Today, Belgravia is considered one of the most fashionable residential areas in the capital and is characterised by its elegant balconies and palatial properties. As well as the large number of residential properties, there are also some small boutique shops and several upmarket hotels and entertainment locations. Several embassies are located in Belgrave Square.
Belgravia is actually part of the City of Westminster and despite being widely recognised as a London region, is not actually a designated administrative area and, therefore, has no exact boundaries. Despite this, it is generally accepted that Buckingham Palace marks the east side of Belgravia, Sloane Street the west, Knightsbridge the north and Pimlico Road the south.Which borough is Belgravia in?
