Do you know what Belgravia is or I would say where Belgravia is? I was really not aware of the name ‘Belgravia’ until I came across this series. Belgravia is an affluent district in London, to be more precise, it covers the areas of the City of Westminster and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. So now we can guess why this series got this title. The entire drama took place in Belgravia, obviously. Belgravia is a historical period drama based on the novel Belgravia written by Julian Fellowes. This 19th-century drama is directed by John Alexander and produced by Colin Wratten with Carnival Films being the production company.
The series has 6 episodes(Season 1) with a running time of approximately 45 minutes each. The story revolves around the secrets and scandals of the upper-class society of London during the 19th century. The Trenchard family(they recently get ascended to the aristocratic society) gets invited to a ball organized by the Dutchess of Richmond, on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo. The ball leads to unrevealing a lot of secrets, the consequences of which are faced by the future generation. Throughout the series, with the drama set, costumes, and background, we get the aesthetic vibe of living in the 19th century.
