Belgrave is a historical village at the entrance to Eaton Hall in Cheshire, United Kingdom. It consists of a few houses and a large thriving Grosvenor Garden Centre. The Centre is situated on the edge of Eaton Park within the Eaton Estate. Originally the site of Pulford Forestry, the Garden Centre opened its doors in 1974.[1]

The village is also one of the Duke of Westminster's subsidiary titles, Viscount Belgrave. Belgravia in London takes it name from this peerage. Most of the area in the capital was originally owned by Richard Grosvenor, 2nd Marquess of Westminster, who had it developed from the 1820s. Belgravia is characterised by grand terraces of white stucco houses and remains one of the most expensive districts in London.
