Lyall Mews , Belgravia

Lyall Mews is a cobbled street - or rather a collection of streets - entered through an arched entrance from the side of Lyall Street.
The north-east corner contains a new development of mews houses There is a parallel road and two connecting roads. the south leg of the mews is particularly attractive and contains original houses mainly on 2 or 3 storeys. The facades are mainly painted, and in different colours.
No. 49 has a particularly attractive cantilevered window at second floor level.
Lyall Street was built on land which formed part of the Lowndes estate. One of the trustees of that estate at the time was Charles Lyall, who gave his name to Charles Street and Lyall Street.
