About this Event

From transforming into a fashionable enclave for the wealthy by the 19th century, to becoming the beating heart of London's fashion scene in the "Swinging Sixties," the district of Chelsea has played a central role in British culture for as long as it's been around. But how did a quiet Saxon fishing village evolve into one of the city's poshest neighborhoods? This is the story of how Chelsea became one of the city's most influential districts, and how that legacy is poised to continue throughout the 21st century.

Join New York Adventure Club as we explore the history behind London's district of Chelsea, a literary and artistic bohemian riverside village that has cemented its reputation as one of the city's most fashionable and artistic neighborhoods for over two centuries.

Led by award winning London Blue Badge Tour Guide Simon Whitehouse, our digital showcase of London’s Chelsea will include:

  • An overview of the early history of Chelsea, and the eccentric Enlightenment doctor whose name can be found all over the neighborhood
  • A virtual visit to important historical locales including Tite Street's 19th century artist colony, Sir Thomas More's medieval mansion, and the oldest botanical gardens in London
  • The neighborhood's connection with many famous people throughout history, from artists like James McNeill Whistler and John Singer Sargent to entertainment icons like Oscar Wilde, Judy Garland, and James Bond
  • A discussion around the coveted and charming Cheyne Walk where everyone who is anyone has lived, such as Dante Gabriele Rossetti, Thomas Carlyle, and even the Rolling Stones
  • The importance of Kings Road to the cutting-edge fashion designers of "Swinging Sixties" London
  • Chelsea's most unique sub-communities, from England’s premier football club to Britain's most famous old soldiers

Afterward, we'll have a Q&A session with Simon — any and all questions about London's Chelsea are welcomed and encouraged!
