Lower Belgrave Street

Like Belgravia itself, Lower Belgrave Street was named after Belgrave, a village near Leicester owned by the Grosvenor family.

Lower Belgrave Street is fairly busy as you would expect so close to Victoria Station. It’s a one-way street taking traffic south. There are some nice-looking houses with brick facades.

The ‘Plumbers’ Arms’ pub was built by Thomas Cubitt along with the surrounding houses. It was the first place Lady Lucan ran to on a wet November night in 1974 when she was attacked in her nearby home by an intruder and discovered the dead nanny, supposedly killed by her vanished husband.
