Belgravia

 

Now known as Apsley house, was actually  Number 1 London when the Duke of Wellington lived here! He would have seen, in the distance, the small village of Knightsbridge. Over the next few years Thomas Cubitt laid out what has become the most sought after residential area in London. Behind the grand regency houses sit the converted stables occupied by quintessentially British pubs, each of which of their own story to tell. From the planning of the great train robbery, to the downfall of not so Lucky Lord Lucan and the launch party of the Beatles most famous album - all life lives here.
