Hyde Park Corner Tube, exit 3 | Map

Short version: The World of Belgravia – the Power & the Glory, the Money & Magnificence, the Lust & Loopiness in the World's Swishest Postcode...

Long version: The grandest London drawing room of them all. That's where we're headed. And first things first: there's no other neighbourhood in London like this. It looks different. Feels different. Sounds different. Feels different. All pearly stucco and cut glass accents and blue blood – the place simply breathes money. The people who live here are people who could live anywhere. Which is why they live here. Here in this movie-set corner of London. Here in Upstairs-Downstairs land, so profoundly English, but also, somehow, exotic. And what a cavalcade of residents: Baroness Margaret Thatcher, David Niven, Vivien Leigh, Lord Lucan, Mozart, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Omar Shariff, "the Special One", "the assassinated one", the one who mistook Hitler for a butler and handed him his coat, the list goes on and on. After tonight you'll be able to do some world class name dropping! And because we're going to see it through the peep-hole – threading our way through its cobbled little lanes and mews – past secret escapes and hideaways and vistas of sudden surprise – we'll make some wonderful discoveries.

LONDON WALKS REVIEWS

"the unfailingly fascinating London Walks... If you can't find one [of their tours] that captures your fancy, maybe you really are tired of life"  San Francisco Chronicle

"The best walks are conducted by London Walks"  Toronto Globe & Mail

"the best walking tour operator in London"  London The AA Key Guide

LONDON WALKS PRIVATE WALKS

If you can't make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Belgravia walks do think about booking one as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Belgravia Walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We'll tailor it to your requirements. And – always  – we go to great lengths to make sure the guide-walker(s) "fit" is well-nigh perfect. Ring Fiona or Noel on 020 7624 3978 or email us at privatewalks@walks.com and we'll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk is good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group. Makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.

GIVE THE GIFT OF LONDON WALKS

A Private London Walk makes a fab present – be it a birthday or anniversary or get-to-know-your-new neighbourhood gift or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that's special. Memories make us rich.
