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

Long read: 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. Guided by Stephanie.


Meet Stephanie just outside exit 3 of Hyde Park Corner  Tube.


“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

It all comes down to the guiding but don’t just take it from us.

    Stephanie was great. We have done a number of your walks over the years and this was a fab one. Weather was lovely which helped.
