Belgrave Mews North , Belgravia

Belgrave Mews North has to be one of the most attractive mews streets in the area. It runs just to the south of (and parallel to) the south side of Wilton Crescent. It is a cul-de-sac and it still has its original cobbles. The houses were clearly built in many different styles and most of them are extremely pretty. Unusually for a mews, there are many attractive trees as well.
The mews ends with a massive brick wall completely covered with creepers and shrubs. There is an even more attractive tree on the other side, which can be seen over the top of the wall. The house next to the wall only has a garage entrance (presumably the house entrance is through one of the houses in Belgrave Square) but it has a beautiful second floor bow window with a view over the whole mews and over the wall looking on to Wilton Crescent.
No. 45 on the north side is particularly appealing.
Like Belgravia itself, Belgrave Mews North was named after Belgrave, a village near Leicester owned by the Grosvenor family.
