Explore Super Chic Belgravia London SW1

I’ve been out and about exploring beautiful Belgravia, London SW1. I can jump on the C10 bus and zoom down to Victoria Coach Station, and I’m in super chic Belgravia. My favourite things in Belgravia include sauntering along Elizabeth Street, where I can treat myself to cupcakes at Peggy Porschen. Another is hanging out at Eccleston Yards for alfresco dining and a spot of wellness pampering. If I want to buy something lavish for my apartment, I can browse the luxury interior stores along Pimlico Road. Motcomb Street is another excellent place to visit, where you can find the Errol Douglas Salon and Ottolenghi. Belgravia is a compact area, but it’s packed full of lots of lovely luxe things to do. If you want to go shopping in SW1, find the best restaurants in Belgravia or explore the area, you’ll enjoy reading my feature.

Elizabeth Street is super cute, and the most charming place is the pink Peggy Porschen cake shop, where you can partake in afternoon tea or buy a cupcake to go. If you fancy coffee and breakfast, try TomTom Coffee House or Baker and Spice. Buy a glam hat from Philip Treacy or a new outfit and shoes from one of the boutiques. With jewellery and homeware stores, you’ll enjoy having a spending spree. To find out more, read my Ten Reasons to Visit Elizabeth Street article.

Eccleston Yards is an excellent hangout spot centred around a courtyard. It was previously a power station and car park which has been refurbished into a social hub. You’ll find a few eateries here, including Wild by Tart, which I can highly recommend along with the Jones Family Kitchen (steak), Morena (Latin street food), Atis (healthy bowls) and Ole and Steen (Danish bakery). There are also a few shops, including a tailor. Wellness, beauty and experience companies include Smuk (hair, make-up and nails), Hotpod Yoga (yoga in a hot pod), Barry’s (fitness), LondonCryo (cold temperature treatments), Re:Mind (mindfulness, meditation and more), MasterPeace (mindfulness and painting) and Studio Pottery (pottery classes).
