It is a very exclusive part of London, part of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. It is named after Belgrave Square, which today includes many international embassies to the UK.

It was used as an alternative UK based location for the original Arthur Conan Doyle story which was A Scandal in Bohemia. Belgravia was probably chosen because of the alteration with Bohemia and the reputation of the area as being a location of rich and powerful people, who Irene Adler (as a professional and very expensive dominatrix) might find clients.

Well, I presume it's the district in London but I have not seen the episode, so I may not be correct.
