Belgravia is an affluent and much sought after area of west London in the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
It began life as a marshy area named Five Fields, which was used for grazing sheep and the growing of fruit.
It was then turned into a habitable renamed as Belgravia in the early 1800's. A prominent family from the area, the Grosvenor family, the Duke of Westminster; the family are still synonymous with the area. They developed the area and named the area Belgravia after the village Belgrave in their family estate in Leicestershire. The architect overseeing the project was Thomas Cubitt
