Chelsea Tour with a private guide

The Famous and the Infamous


  • HOMES OF FAMOUS WRITERS, PAINTERS AND MUSICIANS

  • ROYAL HOSPITAL, CHELSEA PENSIONERS AND NATIONAL ARMY MUSEUM

  • THE KING'S ROAD, HEART OF SWINGING 60s LONDON

  • ARTS AND CRAFTS CHURCH


  • Stroll around fashionable Chelsea with your own private guide and hear the tales of the many famous, and infamous, people who have lived here. Artistic and literary figures have made Chelsea their home from the 19th century to the present day, resulting in some beautiful buildings and some wonderful stories.

    We'll see the famous Royal Hospital, home to the Chelsea Pensioners and a world-renowned flower show. Unexpected sights include a peace pagoda and even part of the Berlin Wall! Enjoy the splendours of the "Arts and Crafts Cathedral" with its magnificent stained glass windows and hear how apothecaries used medicinal plants in one of Londonís oldest gardens.

    See the site of Henry VIII's palace and learn about his relationship with Sir Thomas More, the "man for all seasons" as we enjoy riverside views.

    After passing some wonderful and varied examples of domestic architecture, we can stroll down the King's Road, the home of the mini skirt and punk fashion in the 1960s and 70s.

    Discover the hot chocolate connection, why Dracula's author left a dead body on the kitchen table and what Julie Andrews and Mick Jagger have got in common! There is an optional visit to Thomas Carlyle's atmospheric home.

    Combine with our Kensington tour for a wonderful day in fashionable, village London!
