Guided Walk

CHELSEA WALK  – 27th October Hidden Gems of SW3 – A walk around Chelsea’s back streets

with Guy Fairbank 11am-12.30. 

 

A group of Members enjoyed a guided walk around Chelsea with Guy Fairbank, a Blue Badge Guide and City of London Guide, with a wide interest in London’s history.  

On this 90-minute stroll we explored the quiet streets off the King’s Road.  We met Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his wife, Bess of Hardwick and the Duchess of Monmouth, Noël Coward’s muse, a giant of the Art Nouveau movement, the site of the Chelsea Pottery, a stylish designer couple, an eccentric architect, and the studio where an iconic album cover was designed.  We also met a Chelsea Girl!

We all knew Chelsea quite well, but Guy managed to find things that even we did not know.  There have been requests for another walk.
