Waterstones Says

The creator of the phenomenally popular Downton Abbey returns with a new riveting piece of historical drama. Belgravia, now adapted as a major ITV series, charts the entanglements and upheavals of the residents in the eponymous, exclusive London district, where the aristocrats and the emerging industrial nouveau riche are learning to exist side by side. Splendid depiction of the 1840s London and society in rupture, Belgravia brims with romance, secrets and intrigue.

Now a major ITV Drama Series

This is a story of people who lived two centuries ago, and yet much of what they desired, much of what they resented and the passions raging in their hearts were only too like the dramas being played out in our own ways, in our own time…

Julian Fellowes's Belgravia is the story of a secret. A secret that unravels behind the porticoed doors of London's grandest postcode.

Set in the 1840s when the upper echelons of society began to rub shoulders with the emerging industrial nouveau riche, Belgravia is peopled by a rich cast of characters.

But the story begins on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo, 15th June 1815. The Duchess of Richmond throws a magnificent ball in Brussels for the Duke of Wellington.

Amongst the guests are James and Anne Trenchard, living on the profits of new-found trading success.  Their daughter Sophia, beautiful and captivating, has caught the eye of Edmund Bellasis, the son and heir of the richest and most prominent families in England.

Twenty-five years later, when the two families are settled in the newly developed area of Belgravia, the events of the ball still resonate.

Because behind Belgravia’s magnificent doors is a world of secrets, gossip and intrigue…

You can read more here about the characters, background and history of Belgravia and over on your Waterstones YouTube channel you can watch Julian Fellowes introduce this splendid novel.
