URBAN LAVISH - The Architecture of Knightsbridge & Belgravia

Header image for Title

This event has finished Took place on: Saturday, 24th Feb 2024

 £13.70

Knightsbridge, Belgravia, two neighbourhoods synonymous with urban grandeur, exquisite taste and extravagance. Once an unremarkable village and fields lining the western approaches to the city, in the first half of the 19th century they exploded into being with Belgravia the instant 'quartier bourgeois' with an upscaled grid of massive Italianate neoclassical villas and terraces that floundered as Victorian architectural fashion later took a decidedly Dutch and Flemish turn.

In the past two decades the two districts have evolved again, with new money splashing cash, pimping-up the old and squeezing in ever-more bijou additions. From boutique shops and hotels, lavish living spaces and passing Lamborghinis and Bugattis , this walk traces the making of Knightsbridge and Belgravia from humble origins to their most spectacular buildings and spaces.
