Beautiful building with an AMAZING library. They organise a lot of events, movie screening etc. Plus they hold Italian lessons, which are absolutely amazing. Teacher Feruccio absolutely rocks!

After pre-planning time off for a course, moving many professional and personal events to suit, the course was cancelled on a Friday evening before a Monday start. The mess that this has caused is compounded by the disappointment. I would never recommend such an organisation.

Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic
residences in London, sophisticated and upscale
Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine
dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll

leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque
and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and
the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw
