A Little Bit About Belsize Park
The name Belsize Park is derived from French bel assis meaning ‘well situated’. The Manor of Belsize dates back to 1317. The name comes from the 17th century manor house and parkland (built by Daniel O’Neill for his wife, the Countess of Chesterfield) which once stood on the site. The estate built up between 1852 and 1878, by which time it extended to Haverstock Hill. After World War I, the construction of blocks of flats began, and now a great many of the larger houses are also converted into flats.
In World War II, a large underground air-raid shelter was built here and its entrance can still be seen near the tube station at Downside Crescent. The area on Haverstock Hill north of Belsize Park underground station up to Hampstead Town Hall and including part of a primary school near the Royal Free Hospital was heavily bombed. When the area was rebuilt, the opportunity was taken to widen the pavement and build further back from the road.
The area is a haunt of celebrities. Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband Chris Martin of Coldplay, comedian Alexander Armstrong, model Kate Moss, TV presenter/newsreaders Fiona Bruce and Zeinab Badawi, Chef Gino D’Acampo, actress Helena Bonham Carter and her partner, film director Tim Burton, actors Don Warrington, Hugh Laurie, Kate Winslet, Tom Hiddleston, Simon Pegg, Sean Bean, and Jude Law, plus Liam Gallagher and Noel Gallagher from Oasis, Muse members Matthew Bellamy, Dominic Howard and Bellamy’s partner actress Kate Hudson, German singer Herbert Grönemeyer, as well as author Fay Weldon all live there.
Belsize Park is mentioned in Marillion song Kayleigh, in the line “loving on the floor in Belsize Park” and in the short film “Les Bicyclettes de Belsize”, of which the title song was covered by Mireille Mathieu, Engelbert Humperdinck, and others. Belsize Park is also referenced on Sleeper’s 1995 debut album “Smart” in the song “Lady Love Your Countryside” with the lyrics “And we could spend our lives puking in Belsize Park”. Kirsty MacColl’s song “England 2 Columbia 0” features the line, “we went to a pub in Belsize Park and cheered on England as the skies grew dark…” It is also the place of residence for the Jewish community targeted by Hitler during the Second World War in the novel The Morning Gift.
There are records of a Belsize Park Rugby Club in North-West London since the 1860s. In 1871, Belsize was one of the clubs at the inaugural meeting of the Rugby Football Union, and therefore pioneers of the game of Rugby Union. In 1878, Belsize moved to form Rosslyn Park RFC, becoming one of England’s leading clubs.
