Pimlico’s residents pride themselves on their proximity to Belgravia and Chelsea, having the Tate Britain a stone’s throw away and being by the river. The attractive white stucco Victorian terraces have historically been inhabited by well to do characters (Laurence Olivier and Winston Churchill were locals) however despite the upper class aspirations Pimlico is slightly more affordable than its super-rich neighbours. Although it doesn’t scream about being a centre for shopping and entertainment, the West End is about a half hour’s walk away and for those extravagant retail sprees, Sloane Street is just 10 minutes up the road. The area is served by the Victoria Line, however its central location means it’s extremely well connected.
