Belgravia: Behind the Facades

On the surface Belgravia seems a utopian dream of stucco-covered mansions. But behind these elegant facades there’s a wealth of scandal and surprising stories…

From inauspicious beginnings; a marshy swamp, infested with violent highwaymen, Belgravia is now one of London’s most sought-after addresses. 


From murderers to magicians, uncover the curious history of Belgravia hiding in plain sight. We will meet corrupt politicians, spurned lovers, gallant heroines, occultists and thieves all set against some of the prettiest streets in the capital.
