Kensington and Chelsea is renowned for its thriving, cosmopolitan atmosphere. It has always been famous for its lavish inhabitants.  In the 18th Century London’s most beautiful courtesans were to be found in its pleasure gardens (clearly being a bit too literal with the term ‘pleasure gardens’).  About the same time, the Chelsea Art Club built up a notorious reputation for its outrageous balls - a reputation that lasted about a century.  It became quite an arty area in the 19th Century, but Chelsea is far too expensive for most artists now.  A number of art and antique shops can still be found with items with very fancy price tags.   In the 1960’s Chelsea became trendy again with the rise of the fashion movement (apparently the mini skirt was first paraded here, much to the shock of many Londoners).   

Last but not least, Chelsea is home to England’s leading football team (at the moment) having recently won the English league title for the second year running and a number of their players are heading to Germany to battle it out in the World Cup.  With this in mind, it seemed suitable to pick Chelsea as the location for the Pub Crawl, and to end up in a pub watching USA v Italy in the World Cup.  GO USA!!

Look forward to you joining us!!

Many thanks to Simon and Cara McPhillips for their hard work in organising this event.
