I’ve been out and about exploring Eccleston Yards, Belgravia, London SW1. I get the C10 bus from outside my apartment, direct to Victoria Coach Station, and it’s a few minutes walk from there. Eccleston Yards is a social place to meet up with friends and hang out. You’ll find a few restaurants along with yoga and fitness studios, a hair salon, plus a few shops. Most businesses are set around a courtyard with alfresco dining at the centre, while others are at Eccleston Place. There is often a large outdoor screen in the summer where you can watch televised sports while lounging in a deckchair. You’ll find plenty of creative businesses housed there as well. It’s a hub of creativity mixed with wellness and lifestyle brands plus delicious food. If you are looking for the best places to eat in Belgravia or wellness in SW1, you must visit Eccleston Yards.
Eccleston Yards Belgravia Restaurants
Homeboy and I had a wonderful lunch at Wild by Tart recently. It is founded by Jemima Jones and Lucy Carr-Ellison of the Tart London catering company and Tom Warren of Lock Photography Studios. The food is delicious, focusing on sustainable and seasonal ingredients cooked on charcoal grills or in a wood oven. The menu features plates like Burrata with Crushed Peas, Parmesan and Mint. Mains range from Bream in a Coconut, Ginger and Turmeric Sauce and a selection of Flatbreads like Courgettes with Confit Garlic Mascarpone, Spenwood Cheese and Lemon. If you love the sound of this menu, read my Wild by Tart Review.

The Jones Family Kitchen is a must if you enjoy steak. They serve Rib-Eye, Sirloin, Fillet and Rump Steak from grass-fed Longhorn cattle that is dry-aged for a minimum of 28 days by The Ginger Pig. You’ll be pleased to hear that they have a whole section dedicated to potatoes with dauphinoise, fries and triple cooked chips. The menu includes fish dishes and a few vegetarian options such as the Meatless Burger and Stuffed Courgettes.
Alfresco dining at the Jones Family Kitchen and Morena
Morena is the place for freshly roasted Columbian coffee and a Latin Street Food menu. Two Columbian sisters own Morena who dish up Huevos Rancheros, Beef Empanadas, Quesadillas and Fish Tacos. Check out the brunch, lunch and dinner menus.
Fill up on a bowl of nutritious food from Atis
If you want healthy food to go or to eat while sitting on a deckchair, try Atis. The focus is on bowls of tasty and nutritious food. Season bowls include the Raw Thai Crunch filled with Romaine, Kale, Slaw, Edamame and more. Salad Bowls, Warm Bowls and an option to Build Your Own are also available. It’s an excellent place for plant-based food, vegan and vegetarian ingredients.

Another place to get hot and sweaty is Barry’s and, more precisely, Barry’s Red Room! Where you can burn over a thousand calories in sixty minutes. Expect loud music and high energy. After your workout, you might want to visit the Fuel Bar for a customised shake.
If you’d prefer to cool down, you should investigate LondonCryo. Cryotherapy is a dry and noninvasive process that lowers your temperature to repair tissue and inflammation. Other services include CyroSkin Slimming, which is an alternative to liposuction and other exciting treatments.

At Re:Mind, things are more relaxed with mindfulness, meditation, breathing exercise, and restorative yoga poses. Re:Mind can even help you connect with your inner animal or nourish you head to toe with sound vibrations which all sounds interesting.
If you want to be creative and mindful at the same time, try MasterPeace. The idea is to practice mindfulness combined with painting.
Another creative outlet is pottery and making something out of clay at Studio Pottery. Browse the work from pottery artists in the shop.

Get your suit Tailor Made
Tailor Made is where you can buy a bespoke and well-fitting suit thanks to the 3D body scanning machine. I love the idea of traditional tailoring made accessible with the help of technology.
Finally, if you have a pet, you’ll want to treat them to a hoodie, outfit or collar from Over Glam.
