Tucked away in a corner of Belgravia, close to Hyde Park and Sloane Street, Motcomb Street is a pretty enclave, with a village-like feel and Georgian townhouses. It is also a popular place to shop, with plenty of luxury fashion and independent boutiques. 


Here’s our guide to the best stops along this stretch.



Motcomb Street was the site of the original Pantechnicon department store which opened here in 1834, originally for well-heeled shoppers to buy furniture and carriages. Always a fashion-forward stretch, the street was also the site of the first Jimmy Choo store and the first Christian Louboutin store, which opened at number 23 - you can still buy the vertiginous shoes here today. 


Designer fashion

Motcomb Street is lined with designer shops and glamorous boutiques. For exquisite couture evening wear, ON Motcomb stocks top international designers, such as Elie Saab, Balmain and Giambattista Valli. It also holds ultra-exclusive pieces commissioned each season from select ateliers. 


Meanwhile, royal couturier Stewart Parvin offers bridalwear fit for a princess, while La Stupenderia, showcases gorgeous Italian childrenswear from mini gowns to smart suits. 


A few doors down, gentlemen will find bespoke, hand-tailored shirts, suits and accessories at Italian tailoring house, Gio Genco, while Eres stocks chic French swimwear and beautifully cut lingerie.


Fine dining

One of famed chef Yotam Ottolenghi’s London outposts, Ottolenghi Belgravia, is a small but sweet deli serving delicious Israeli-inspired salads and flatbreads. It’s open for breakfast and lunch. 


For aromatic Indian flavours with a fine-dining twist, Michelin-starred Amaya, just off Motcomb Street, presents a sophisticated take on classic dishes prepared in a dramatic show kitchen.


Shop for artisanal cheeses at The Fine Cheese Co., and while you’re there, refuel with one of its charcuterie platters loaded with tasty cured meats. Opposite, chocolatier Rococo Chocolates’ flagship store is a sweet vision of award-winning fresh truffles, ganaches and caramels.


Classic art

Showcasing classic British works, many of which have a sporting or equestrian theme, Osborne Studio Gallery is a top location to enjoy art, and perhaps pick out a piece to buy. You’ll find horse racing paintings, beautiful bronzes, landscapes and charming figurative works here.


Bespoke beauty

Legendary hair stylist Errol Douglas MBE has a salon on the street, where you can polish up your look with a cut and colour or manicure and makeover. Further down, Michaeljohn Spa offers hair and beauty appointments alongside medispa treatments such as skin peels and laser treatments
