Au programme

The tour starts at Hyde Park Corner across the road from a former hunting ground of Henry VIII, and next to the home of the Duke of Wellington. We then walk into the heart of Belgravia to learn how an area once frequented by highwaymen became one of the most fashionable and affluent residential districts in London. Walking around the Grosvenor Estate you will hear about some of the people who have lived there, from actors, authors and politicians to notorious criminals. You will also discover the history of some of the houses, including three pubs, all of which have an unusual story associated with them. The tour ends in a 21st-century courtyard close to Victoria Station.
Other things to note
Wear suitable clothing for the weather and suitable shoes for walking on pavements.

Le lieu

We start the tour at Hyde Park Corner but soon move on to the quieter streets and mews of Belgravia. We see the grand terraces of Belgrave Square before continuing onwards through Eaton Square. The tour then takes us to Chester Square before finishing near Victoria Station where plenty of onward transport is available.

Philippa and her tour were brilliant... We learnt so much history about an area of London we thought we knew, as well as lots of of facts about the development of the city more generally. We also discovered lots of cute little areas and bars along the way! Philippa was kind, clear and engaging, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It’s a great activity to do on a warm summer’s day :)
