From Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes comes BELGRAVIA, the captivating story of a secret that unravels behind the doors of Victorian London’s grandest postcode. Revealed in serialised instalments with twists and turns and cliff-hanger endings, episodes are delivered directly to your device each week. You can read each episode, or listen to the audio narrated by Juliet Stevenson, or switch between the two. Download now to read or listen to Episode 1 for free.
The BELGRAVIA app includes exclusive features: a family tree that grows as you progress through the story and a map of the streets of 1840s Belgravia where you can see inside the sumptuous homes of our characters. Meet the social-climbing Trenchards who’ve made their money in trade and the Brockenhursts, a family from the highest echelons of Britain’s aristocracy, and discover the ties which bind them.
In every episode the bonus features are signalled in subtle blue text – videos, photos, illustrations, music and historical insight into this great time of change. Sections of text can be highlighted and favourited to be shared with friends and family. Purchased episodes include both the chapter text and audio edition read by award-winning actor Juliet Stevenson.
The app includes the text and audio editions of Episode 1: Dancing Into Battle where, on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo, the Duchess of Richmond threw a magnificent ball in Brussels for the Duke of Wellington. Just after midnight, word came that Napoleon had unexpectedly crossed the border and Wellington and his troops were called immediately to prepare for war. Many of the officers died on the battlefield, still in the dress uniforms they had worn to the ball.
At the ball are James and Anne Trenchard and their beautiful daughter Sophia, who has caught the eye of Edmund Bellasis, the son and heir of the Brockenhurst dynasty. Something takes place that has a seismic effect on all their lives and twenty-five years later, when the two families are settled in the newly-developed Belgravia, the consequences of this terrible secret still resonate. Behind the doors of these magnificent new houses lies a web of gossip and intrigue.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
If I could give this app no stars I would, it is such a shame that the app lets down the content. Having to login all the time is maddening. I am not reading, it but using as an audio book and it is very hard to navigate through the episodes if you should fall asleep and want to start half way through. It's driving me crazy. Less snazzy bits and more on the basics would be good. Most of all get....'remember me' on the login.
Terrible app - sorry Julian
I have now downloaded this app to my iPad three times as it keeps freezing. Having started eventually chapter two, when relogging back in I am back to the beginning of the chapter again. You could make a cup of tea in the time it takes to turn a page. I have asked for a refund. They will have made the tv series faster than I can read this book. What a disappointment!
Not fit for purpose
The app keeps crashing and episodes that were previously downloaded disappear and are no longer available. I've paid a full series subscription but am unable to read the latest episodes. No clear offer of help available in-app either. I should have stuck to buying via the kindle store instead of wasting my money on this!
