Belgrave Mews South , Belgravia

Belgrave Mews South is a cul-de-sac which is entered through an arched entrance from Belgrave Place and then runs just below Belgrave Square. It is an attractive cobbled street. It is made all the more attractive by the fact that the houses have many differing styles, and the mews is a lot less uniform than many.
Some of the houses have bare-brick facades at first floor level but most have been painted. No. 21 on the north side particularly stands out with its attractive first floor bow-fronted window.
At the entrance there is a small "sentry box".
Belgrave Mews South was named after Belgrave, a village near Leicester owned by the Grosvenor family.
