The Belgravia District of London
One of the most exclusive and sought after areas in central London, Belgravia is beautifully characterised by its grand squares, stately mansions and elegant terraces of pearl white stucco houses of the 1820s. The imposing walls of Buckingham Palace border the district – and we must say they make fabulous neighbours!
As one of London’s most fashionable residential areas Belgravia is home to some of the finest property in the world, and so it is only befitting that since 1910 it has also been home to one of the world’s finest five star hotels.
Being situated in Belgravia gives The Goring the perfect location – in striking distance of the commercial districts of the City and Docklands, close to Theatreland and the bright lights of the West End, and with many historic and exciting sights on the doorstep, as well as superb transport links at Victoria Railway Station. Buckingham Palace, Westminster Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, the River Thames and London Eye, as well as London’s great Royal Parks (Hyde Park, Green Park and St James’s Park) are all within walking distance.
The Goring, of course, offers wonderful choices to dine and entertain, but Belgravia is also home to a host of lovely restaurants and bars. John and the Concierge team will be happy to help make arrangements for you at any of these. The Victoria Palace and Apollo Victoria theatres are just around the corner from the hotel, currently playing the hit musicals Billy Elliott and Wicked. And then, of course, there’s the shopping - from the luxury department stores of Harrods and Harvey Nichols, the fashion boutiques of Sloane Street, the interiors, art and antique shops of Pimlico Road, as well as the new Cardinal Place shopping precinct near Victoria Railway Station, all just moments from The Goring.
Belgravia is truly an exceptional location in an extraordinary city.
