History

With a name derived from the French belassis, meaning ‘well situated’, Belsize Park was once home to a manor house and parkland built in the 17th century. Housing development took place in two phases: between 1852 and 1878 and then after World War I when numerous blocks of flats were constructed in the area.

Heavy bombing during the Second World War meant much of the area was rebuilt and during the reconstruction, developers took the opportunity to widen the pavement on Haverstock Hill, creating the distinctive look visible today.
