Places We Love

Saatchi Gallery

The gallery contains the largest free art exhibition in the world, periodically including Tracey Emin’s "My Bed" and Damien Hurst’s "The Physical Impossibility of Death In The Mind Of Someone Living” (the shark in formaldehyde).

Royal Court Theatre

In its first incarnation, the theatre saw the first stage adaptation of Charles Dickens’ "Great Expectations”. The theatre now considers over 3,500 unsolicited scripts for new plays every year.

Michelin Building

"The most completely French of any Edwardian building in London”, and home to "London’s most consistently excellent restaurant”, Bibendum.

Cadogan Hall

Now the residence of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, it opened as a New Christian Science Church in 1907.

King's Road

The facade of Vivienne Westwood’s King’s Road boutique sported 4 ft. pink rubber letters spelling "SEX". The interior was covered with graffiti and chicken wire.

Chelsea remains one of London's most distinguished addresses. Property here evokes ideals of past century decadence and stylish living. The area has long had connections with the Monarch, yet its balance of old school charm and modern culture is today what attracts people from across the city and around the world.

The renowned Sloane Square and the historic King's Road are the main arteries with an abundance of fashionable cafes, shops and restaurants. The tube is also within easy reach allowing for easy access in and out of London.

Fact: The King's Road was named specifically for Charles II originally serving as a private road from St James's Palace to Fulham. A special token was needed to access it until 1830.
