The Belgravia District of London
The district of Belgravia is probably the most imposing area of London, characterised by the grand squares, stately mansions and elegant terraces of white stucco houses of the 1820s. Buckingham Palace borders the district, who we have always considered the nicest of neighbours!
Belgravia was one of London’s most fashionable residential districts from the start and remains so to this day; home to a vast number of Embassies and where some of Britain’s most exclusive homes are found.
To be located in Belgravia gives The Goring simply 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. Not only Buckingham Palace, but 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, with whom John and the Concierge team will be happy to help make arrangements for you. The Victoria Palace and Apollo Victoria theatres are literally 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, to the interiors, art and antique shops of Pimlico Road, as well as the new Cardinal Place shopping precinct near Victoria Railway Station, just moments from The Goring.
Belgravia is an exceptional location in an extraordinary city.
