The playground for London’s wealthier residents, Chelsea was the home of the Sloane Ranger and is now, thanks to ‘Made in Chelsea’, known for a whole host of reality TV stars. High-end fashion boutiques are scattered all down the King’s Road and tucked down the immaculately kept residential streets are a number of gastropubs, the Chelsea equivalent of the local boozer. While those searching for cocktails and nightlife will be pleased by the swanky bars on offer, there’s much to please those with an artistic streak, too. The Saatchi Gallery and the Royal Court Theatre have both made this fancy area their home.

Retro or vintage, goth or steampunk...Whatever your cup of tea is, you're bound to find something that tickles your fancy at the Camden markets. The Camden markets consist of six distinct markets in and around Camden Town, which are located near Camden Lock. The Camden markets draw in 100,000 tourists every weekend (which makes it the fourth most popular visitor attraction in London), who venture to the area to find great deals on clothing, accessories and other handicraft items. But believe it or not the Camden markets are a relatively new addition to London, as the area surrounding Camden Lock was used primarily for agricultural and industrial purposes since before the 1800s.

The oldest botanical garden in London, Chelsea Physic Garden was founded in 1673 to train apothecaries in the use of medicinal plants. Now you can visit the Tangerine Dream Cafe, a place where you can sit outside or in and order anything from Lavender Scones to Real Ale. If you see children stomping on the grass, fear not, they are simply pretending to be rain to entice the appearance of thirsty worms.

Fulham Palace was the episcopal retreat of the Bishops of London. The present building was built in Tudor times, with later significant Georgian and Victorian additions. It would be more accurate to call it a manor house than a palace, but it gives a fine glimpse into the changing lifestyles and architecture of nearly 500 years, from the Tudor hall to the Victorian chapel; try out the echo in the courtyard.
