SHOPPING IN BELGRAVIA

Champagne Cupcakes
and Couture Hats

Belgravia is a temple of temptation, seducing shoppers with alpaca
blankets, art deco lamps, hand-rolled Cuban cigars and
Scottish Highland malt whisky.
The neighbourhood is composed of more than 300 niche boutiques and businesses, offering everything from sumptuous Chesterfield sofas to champagne cupcakes, couture hats and beautifully packaged bags of Mayan hot chocolate. Pimlico Road, Belgravia’s desirable design district, is the place to dig for one-of-a-kind antiques and statement pieces of furniture, where talents such as David Linley, Rose Uniacke and Nicholas Haslam display their wares in striking showroom settings.
Nearby Elizabeth Street will appeal to foodies and fashionistas alike, home to the French bakery Poilâne, the Donna Ida denim boutique and the specialist perfumery Les Senteurs. Elizabeth Street is also the focal point of the Belgravia Wedding Quarter, a mecca for brides-to-be, while Motcomb Street ups the ante with Louboutin shoes, luxury linens, French cosmetics and a smart, boutique-sized branch of the Royal Warrant-awarded Waitrose.
