Description

Join blue badge guide Anne-Marie Craven on this unique walking tour that will offer a glimpse into the lives of the saintly and the sinful who have graced the streets of Chelsea. The tour will take you on a journey through Chelsea to view the spots that past residents once called home, from Thomas More to Hortense Mancini, via the local convent.

This tour will start at the National Army Museum and finish at Ropers Gardens near Battersea Bridge and will last approximately 90 minutes.

The guide will be using the Vox Connect app to facilitate social distancing on this walking tour. We recommend that you download this in advance and bring headphones.
