LONDON HAS OFTEN BEEN DESCRIBED AS A ‘CITY OF VILLAGES’, A NETWORK OF NEIGHBOURHOODS, EACH WITH ITS OWN DISTINCT CHARACTER, OFTEN CENTRED AROUND A LOCAL HIGH STREET OR TOWN CENTRE

In the oldest, most sought-after areas, the correct term is less ‘village’ than ‘great estate’. To go for a walk in Belgravia or Fitzrovia is to enjoy London at its very finest, a city in which the shops, streets and residences enjoy a sense of leisurely unity that is easy to recognise but hard to describe. That this is still the case centuries after these areas were built is testimony to the wisdom of the Georgian era, a period spanning the century between 1714 and 1837, and a time in which many of the great districts of London found their feet. Perhaps the greatest legacy of the principles that were at work is the London city square, that stately symbol of residential distinction and an ingenious way to bring focus, space and greenery to great estates in all places from Kensington to Bloomsbury.
