Property Types & Architecture
The Regency fronted buildings are what springs to mind when someone mentions Belgravia: most of these properties however have been converted into hostels and hotels for young tourists. Few residential properties come on to the market as they are more profitable as visitors' accommodation, however when they do they fetch a high price. The internal quality can vary between excellent and exceptionally poor but with due attention they can be the match of properties in neighbouring Sloane Square or Victoria.
Shopping & Entertainment
Most of the Belgravia area has been crammed with hotels so there is very little in the way of shopping and entertainment in the immediate vicinity. However, just a few minutes away at Pimlico and Victoria there is ample scope for entertainment and shopping.
Parks & Commons
There is little in the way of large parks but there are a few small communal gardens and access to the West End parks is easy.
