Elizabeth Street is a super cute and stylishly chic street in Belgravia. It’s brimming with adorable boutiques and laid-back eateries and everywhere you look there are floral decorations. You’ll be surprised just how pretty the area is because of the proximity to Victoria Coach Station. There is nothing wrong with the Coach Station, but it is noisy and busy, which is very different from the relaxed vibe of Elizabeth Street. I’ve put together a list of ten reasons to visit Elizabeth Street to entice you to experience this beautiful area of Belgravia SW1 for yourself.
Whether you want to browse the boutiques, shoe shops or jewellery stores, sip coffee, eat a cupcake or lick ice cream, this little street has it all.
Homegirl London’s Ten Reasons To Visit Elizabeth Street
Philip Treacy Shop
- Browse the boutiques and shoe shops, including NRBY (34 Elizabeth Street), where you will find relaxed clothing for everyday use, from dungarees to slouchy joggers. ME+EM (45 Elizabeth Street) create women’s clothing that is flattering, functional with the wear-forever appeal. Beulah (77 Elizabeth Street) has some delightful floaty dresses with floral patterns. Their mission is to fight slavery for women through fashion by employing women who have been trafficked. For beautiful Italian made shoes, boots, ankle boots and bags, you should pop into Stivaleria Cavallin (47 Elizabeth Street). Check out their Little Sexy Boots, which are very sexy indeed. Treat yourself to a fabulous couture hat from Philip Treacy (69 Elizabeth Street). These are no ordinary hats; they make a statement and will get you noticed for all the right reasons. If you have a wedding, special occasion or event coming up, you must visit this shop.
2. Try on necklaces, rings, earrings, or bracelets at one of the jewellers. If you’re a fan of bold and colourful costume jewellery, you’ll love Vickisarge (38 Elizabeth Street). If you’d prefer something exquisite to go with your couture dress, shop at De Vroomen (59 Elizabeth Street). Loquet (73 Elizabeth Street) is the place to buy a lovely locket with options to personalise and create something unique that is a keepsake.
3. Once you’ve treated yourself to an outfit, shoes and jewellery, you may want to purchase a bottle of perfume. Les Senteurs (17 Elizabeth Street) is one of London’s oldest independent perfumeries. It’s a haven for scent lovers where you can discover the art of layering fragrance.
Pepa & Co Shop
4. Treat your little ones to something special from Pepa & Co (40 Elizabeth Street). The children’s clothing shop is known for its classic, quality clothing that looks smart for newborns and up to children aged ten. If you need a pair of shoes to go with the outfit, head across the road to Papouelli to purchase children’s shoes, trainers or boots.
Mungo and Maud Shop
5. Pamper your pooch with a gift from Mungo and Maud (79 Elizabeth Street). Belgravia is the land of cute little dogs, so it’s no surprise that this store is popular. They sell premium accessories for cats and dogs, including collars, leads, beds, clothing and toys.
Summerille and Bishop Shop
6. Buy something beautiful for your home. Summerille and Bishop (58 Elizabeth Street) have a fabulous selection of French brands. It’s a great shop to seek out tableware, including plates, cutlery, napkins, placemats and more. At the Joanna Wood Shop (57 Elizabeth Street), you will find hand-picked homewares, decorative objects, and tableware by the interior designer.
Tomtom Coffee House Brunch
7. Dine at one of the eateries. Enjoy breakfast, brunch or a specialist Allpress coffee at the Tomtom Coffee House (114 Ebury Street on the corner of Elizabeth Street). We sat outside and enjoyed a Super Green Omelette and Spicy Tuna Toastie. Also on the menu is a Breakfast Roll, Avocado on Toast, Eggs on Toast, Pancakes, Salads and Grain Bowls. Another brunch place is Baker and Spice (54-56 Elizabeth Street), although it was undergoing renovation on our visit to the street. They serve Mediterranean style dishes, and there will be a new deli. If you want lunch, dinner or a drink, head to The Thomas Cubitt Pub (44 Elizabeth Street).
Peggy Porschen Cakes and Coffees
8. Get your cupcake fix at Peggy Porschen (116 Ebury Street). It’s on the corner of Ebury and Elizabeth Street). The pink parlour has an abundance of blooming lovely flowers around the doorway. Step inside, and you can drool over the cute cupcakes and more through the glass counter. We stopped off for a Chocolate and Raspberry Sponge, Cookies and Cream Cup Cake and coffees. Please read my full Peggy Porchen Review for more information.
Olivogelo Gelato Ice Cream
9. Lick an ice cream at Olivogelo (28 Elizabeth Street), where you can select homemade gelati using traditional recipes and Sardinian ingredients. Choose from gelato in a brioche bun, cone or tub, and they also sell waffles, ice cream cakes and shakes. Some of the more exciting flavours include Saffron and Mascarpone with Honey and Walnut.
10. Pick up freshly baked French bread from Poilâne (49 Elizabeth Street). They make Sourdough, Rye, Walnut and Pepper Loaves. Chestnut Bakery (17-21 Elizabeth Street) also sells Bread (Challah Roll, Ka’ak), Cakes (Vegan Cinnamon Bun) and Flat Bread from the clay oven with various toppings which you can eat at the bakery. If you need more than bread, you’ll enjoy grocery shopping in Bayley and Sage (141 Ebury Street on the corner of Elizabeth Street), the upmarket deli selling bread, wine, cold meats, veg, fruit and flowers.
