About Ebury Street
Our hotel is located on Ebury Street in Belgravia, one of the most exclusive residential areas in the heart of London. The street was mostly built between 1815 and 1860, although some parts date from the previous century. It is primarily a residential street but also has numerous shops, restaurants and hotels. It is a quiet and safe street with easy access to areas such as Victoria, Westminster, Chelsea, Pimlico, Knightsbridge and Mayfair which means excellent transport facilities and a vast range of activities, shops, entertainment are restaurants are easily accessible by foot.
Famous people and Ebury Street
Mozart stayed at 180 Ebury Street in 1764 and a plaque commemorates his stay; there is also a statue of him in the square opposite. Other famous people who have lived on Ebury Street include the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, James Bond creator Ian Fleming and 19th Century novelist George Moore. Currently Ebury Street and the surrounding area is home to many well-known people such as Mrs Thatcher, Nigella Lawson, Sean Connery and others.
Most of Belgravia, including Ebury Street, belongs to the Grosvenor Estates, the UK’s largest private landlord headed by the Duke of Westminster, currently the richest Englishman living in the country. The elegant squares and streets of Belgravia have since been carefully maintained and overseen by the Grosvenor thus ensuring that the unique charm and beauty of the area is perpetuated. Ebury Street and the surrounding streets and squares have retained the unique ‘village’ feel that makes it a pleasant to live in or visit.
