Belgravia

Belgravia is a region in the City of Westminster, London, England, to the south-west Buckingham Palace.

It is known for its expensive hotels and is considered by the rich to be a desirable place to live. Many embassies with the United Kingdom are in the area, notably Belgrave Square.

The area was owned by Richard Grosvenor, the 2nd Marquess of Westminster, and was developed in the 1820s. Thomas Cubitt was responsible for much of the design.
