A fabulous place for learning, playing and discovering. The Science Museum features a host of interactive displays designed to surprise and fascinate – children and adults alike will be hooked!
B) Royal Albert Hall
The “biggest & best” music arena in town, the Royal Albert Hall is a magnificent amphitheatre that exudes substance, stature and history. The sheer granduer of its ornate carvings make this the natural venue of choice for top performances in Europe.
C) Chelsea Physic Garden
A blissfully peaceful perfumed garden, the area features a maze of crisscrossed gavel paths hidden behind a high brick wall. Species of a host of aromatic herbs and flowers are labeled for the avid botanists and gardening enthusiasts.
D) Carlyle’s House
Under the care of the National Trust, the Victorian home that once belonged to the 19th century Scottish writer, historian and social philosopher, Thomas Carlyle and his wife, can be quite an experience with its original decor, furnishings and much of the owner’s personal possesions. Widely known for his history of the French Revolution, Carlyle wrote his monumental tomes in the attic which he had soundproofed against his neighbours. He and his wife lived a life full of anecdote and incident and there is much here to delight both those with an interest in literary history and those with an enthusiasm for Victorian interiors.
E) Royal Court Theatre
A leading force in world theatre, the Royal Court Theatre is dedicated to promoting new works by innovative writers. An inspiring source of fresh talent and quality plays.
F) Cadogan Hall
Founded in 1893, Cadogan Hall was the first Christian Science Church. The building has been converted into a charming 900 seat concert hall and is quickly becoming one of London’s liveliest concert halls hosting events ranging from orchestral performances, big bands, jazz as well as contemporary works.
G) Natural History Museum
A must-see for visitors to London, the Natural History Museum showcases a fantastic display of dinosaur fossils, marine life and more. Entrance is free and exhibits are a joy for all ages.
Famous for its impeccable attention to service and quality, Harrods in London is the epitome of luxury offering floor after floor of branded merchandise at one of the largest departmental stores in the world. This quintessential shopping experience features more than 300 departments housed within its smart terracotta Victorian architecture. Among the store’s many floors, its seasonal Christmas department and Edwardian Food Hall attract flocks of visitors every year.
I am a British professional woman currently living in Singapore. My apartment in Chelsea is my second and much loved home.
I would be happy to welcome you to my home should you choose this location for your stay in London.
I bought the apartment in 1990 and completely refurbished it in 2007. The Sloane Square area was a natural choice for me because of the "buzz" that personifies Sloane Square and The King's Road.
Since I first bought the flat, things have only got better. The recent development of The Duke of York Barracks has brought many interesting shops and charming restaurants to the area. I love to take walks around the vicinity as there are parks and gardens in abundance close by.
Another advantage of living at the apartment is that transport to the rest of London is so easy by tube (from Sloane Square Tube Station). There are also multiple bus routes which converge at Sloane Square.
I am delighted to be able to share this lovely property with visitors to London. My guests so far have told me what they enjoyed the most was the liveliness of the area and the tranquility and coziness of my London home.
In addition to the charm of the apartment, lovely surroundings and the convenience of living at Sloane Square, you can be assured that you will be well taken care of during your stay in London. The property is managed by a very competent manager who will ensure that your visit is stress free from the moment you step off your flight until the moment you are on your way home.
