Cabmen’s Shelter

The cabmen’s shelter near Albert Bridge which we saved from dereliction, has now opened as a café………Thurs-Sun 8 am -5pm
Its the only place on the north bank from Westminster to Wandsworth bridge where we can sit down and enjoy the view with a cappuccino!

Proposal for listing of shelters

On 24th January 2021 The Chelsea Society proposed to Historic England that the cabmen’s shelters in Pont Street, and near the Albert Bridge, be listed.  Our application was supported by the MP, the GLA member, the Cheyne Walk Trust, MISARA, the Brompton Association, and RBKC.

We are delighted to report that our proposals were both accepted and that the shelters are now listed Grade II under Entry numbers: 1474998, and 1474999

The third cabmen’s shelter in Chelsea, opposite the Victoria & Albert Museum, was already listed, so all three are now protected.

The shelter near Albert Bridge (L) has now been fully restored after The Chelsea Society, with the help of Cllr. Alison Jackson,  persuaded RBKC to serve a dilapidations notice on the owners under section 215 of  the Town & Country Planning Act 1990.
