Chelsea Uncovered

Saturday 23rd March
Elaine Wein will lead us through the histories and mysteries of this fascinating part of London

IBM Club Member's* Price £5 per person
Non-Member Price £10 per person

Chelsea is very much London's bohemian village and the epicentre of the City in the Swinging Sixties. Starting at Sloane Square, we will discover its picturesque squares and mews and walk in the footsteps of famous figures from Oscar Wilde to Mick Jagger. We will see where Bram Stoker came to breathe life into his infamous figure Dracula, Christopher Wren's Royal Hospital, one of London's finest secular buildings and the home of our famous Chelsea Pensioners and the second oldest botanic garden in the country. Strolling along by the river, we will see where Thomas More & Henry VIII lived and worshipped and the house where Dante Gabrielle Rossetti's bohemian lifestyle both outraged and frustrated his neighbours. Finally, we will learn why Dolly Birds dressed in tight fitting purple cat-suits shocked the neighbours. 

Meeting Point: 11:00 AM at Sloane Square Tube Station - Exit 1 by the kiosk.  The walk will finish at Chelsea Town Hall, a 15 minute walk or 5 minute bus ride back to Sloane Square Tube Station.
