Behind the brick exterior lies a treasure trove of monuments and plaques covering fascinating periods of British history. It is one of those strange buildings where, as you enter the door, the interior seems bigger than the outside. Parts were bombed in the Second World...More

Fascinating interior, full of stories and a potted history of London. A must see London sight especially if you have an interest in the Tudor period. The gardens next door are lovely in the Spring.

Please not that the map on this site is incorrect- the church is on this street but right by the Thames. By the time I'd walked down to it I only had a short time there but what I saw was great. I'll go again...More

Chelsea Old Church is another beautiful church n London. Reported to have been a church on this location since the 1100's, this is a really old and treasured part of history. Also known as All Saints Church - it is definitely worth a visit!

Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's
upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops,
eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at
its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely
unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this
showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price
tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down
pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal
