Belgravia was once the haunt of handcuffs and thieves, but now rivals Mayfair as London’s wealthiest district.

It started out as a swampy mess called Five Fields, until Thomas Cubitt filled it in with dirt dug up from the rubble of Docklands.

Grosvenor Place was the first area to be settled, and when King George III bought Buckingham House soon after, the rich and wealthy hang-tailers moved in.

Lord Grosvenor was responsible for much of the funding, and set Cubitt to work on the houses around Belgrave Square. John Nash was simultaneously making his name on the remodelled Buckingham House, turning into the grand mansion that we see today – Buckingham Palace.
