discover Chelsea

A walk around the mews and riverside of Chelsea. This walk explores the history of Henry VIII's manor house and its links to two of his wives, his daughter, the future Queen Elizabeth I, and his (then) friend, Thomas More.

Take in the architectural splendor of the Royal Hospital Chelsea founded by
Charles II and designed by Sir Christopher Wren and now the site of the annual
Chelsea Flower Show.

More recent connections and homes to artists, authors and rock-stars are pointed
out as we move into the swinging London of the 60's and punk of the 70's.
