Things to Do

From this Chelsea B&B, London's tourist attractions, theatres and shops, museums and art galleries are all within easy reach, while those with other interests are also well served.

A useful tip is to buy a Daily Bus Pass for £3.50 from the local convenience shop which allows you to hop on and off the buses all day.

Bus No 14 along the Fulham Road passes the museums of South Kensington, Harrods in Knightsbridge, then on past Bond Street, the Burlington Arcade and Fortnum & Mason to Piccadilly Circus, through the theatres of Shaftesbury Avenue to end at Tottenham Court Road.

Bus No 414 follows the same route to Hyde Park Corner, then turns up Park Lane and through Marble Arch - for Oxford Street shopping - to Edgware Road and ends at Maida Vale, convenient for Little Venice, the Regent's Canal and Lord's Cricket Ground.

Bus No 211 soon leaves the Fulham Road for the Kings Road with its trendy boutiques and eating places, skirts Sloane Square and passes through Victoria on its way to Westminster - for the Abbey and Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and the London Eye - before crossing the river to Waterloo.

Bus No 11 along the Kings Road is particularly good value for sightseers, passing through Victoria and Westminster before turning up Whitehall to Trafalgar Square, then travelling along the Strand and Fleet Street - passing the famous Cheshire Cheese where Charles Dickens and Dr Johnson once sat and where you too can have a pub lunch - and on to St Paul's and the Bank of England before ending at Liverpool Street.

For more relaxed sightseeing, riverside strolls along Cheyne Walk and the Embankment to Old Chelsea with its charming houses and garden squares could end with a drink in a local pub.

Garden lovers need only hop on to Bus No 211 for the world-renowned Chelsea Flower Show (held annually in May) and the historic Chelsea Physic Garden.

Tennis fans will easily be able to reach the Wimbledon Tournament from Earls Court, while soccer fans will find Chelsea Football Club just around the corner at Stamford Bridge.

Antique collectors will revel in the concentration of fabulous antique shops at the further ends of Fulham Road and the Kings Road, while those who love simply browsing will enjoy Antiquarius and the Portobello Road Market.

The restaurants, bars, cafes and pubs along Fulham Road, Hollywood Road and the Old Brompton Road are immensely popular with Londoners as there is something to suit all tastes and budgets. Takeaway food is also available.

Local convenience shops include a 24-hours supermarket, Post Office, newsagency, bank, chemist, hairdresser and nail bar, dry cleaner and internet cafe.
