The Lodge Hotel Putney is a wise choice for those wanting to explore Chelsea and central London. We highly recommend visiting Chelsea, in particular a stroll along the Kings Road and Duke of York Square from Sloane Square tube. Of swinging sixties fame, the Kings Road is filled with high-end boutiques, the renowned Peter Jones department store, and many independent galleries and book shops. It is fantastic for people watching and experiencing one of London’s prettiest areas. Getting to Chelsea from Putney is simple, via bus or car, but the easiest is the tube, taking less than 15 minutes.
Other notable Chelsea attractions are the Design Centre at Chelsea Harbour has been dubbed ‘the interior design world’s Mecca’, telling you all you need to know about the quality and quantity of shops and showrooms. Designers from all over the country travel there to find inspiration. Chelsea football club, both the shop and stadium at Stamford Bridge – the home of The Blues are actually in Fulham but super easy to reach from The Lodge Hotel. Stadium tours for behind the scenes look at the famous club, the pitch, changing rooms, press conference and museum are worth a visit for football fans. The Saatchi Gallery in Duke of York Square is free and showcases a ever changing collection of contemporary art.
Chelsea is home to the famous Chelsea Flower Show. RHS Chelsea is the most prestigious flower and gardening show in the world and inspires millions and leads the way in innovative garden design. Hosted on the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea each May, the show runs for five days, coinciding with a gorgeous time of the year to visit London.
