I had several reasons for visiting Chelsea. The most compelling was to view Chelsea Old Church for its relevance to Tudor history. Once again, England should be congratulated on preserving their landmarks. This church was almost obliterated in the German bombing of 1941. Little remained...More

Fascinating interior, full of stories and a potted history of London. A must see London sight especially if you have an interest in the Tudor period. The gardens next door are lovely in the Spring.

Please not that the map on this site is incorrect- the church is on this street but right by the Thames. By the time I'd walked down to it I only had a short time there but what I saw was great. I'll go again...More

Chelsea Old Church is another beautiful church n London. Reported to have been a church on this location since the 1100's, this is a really old and treasured part of history. Also known as All Saints Church - it is definitely worth a visit!
