The attractions of Chelsea were evident as early as the 16th century, when both Sir Thomas More and Henry VIII built mansions here. At that time Chelsea was primarily a riverside settlement, its supplies and visitors arriving by boat, usually docking near the Old Church.
Serious development began in the late eighteenth century when parts of the large estate once owned by Sir Hans Sloane were built upon, and gradually, as the King's Road was brought into public use, Chelsea spread northwards. It is now one of the most coveted areas of London, envied for its architecture, shopping and atmosphere. This book explores Chelsea's history and brings us up to date with new buildings and happenings.
