Living in Belmont area information and guide

Belmont area overview

Belmont in the far south west of London is deep suburban territory. Whilst being a fairly tranquil and functional village it owes much of its original development to the presence of a nearby lunatic asylum. Banstead Asylum which opened in 1877 was a fairly substantial operation which needed lots of staff to keep it running so the village developed as a result. The asylum has now been replaced by HM Prison High Down, nothing like a prison to spice up the character of suburbia. Residents of Belmont are right on the boundary of Greater London so no surprise commuting to the centre takes a while. From Belmont station it takes about 50 minutes to get to Victoria.
