This internationally recognised Knightsbridge and Belgravia area is untouched by time, the classical designs and architecture built in the 1800s stand strong whilst the rest of the city has evolved around it. At its core it is steeped in tradition. After King George IV set up Buckingham Palace as his main homestead in 1825, the elite and upper class moved in to this neighbouring area. The incredibly wealthy Grosvenor family commissioned architect Thomas Cubitt to assist in building up this newfound location who brought international influence to the designs, such as the beautiful white stucco constructs from Italy which reside in Eaton Square.
Several green spots are peppered throughout the area providing residents with some natural breaks in the architecture, Belgrave Square Gardens finds folk flocking to the grounds to enjoy the picturesque and quaint surroundings.
