Where do SW1X locals go?

Brunello Cucinelli

Luxurious Italian clothing in the heart of Chelsea.

The Grenadier

A local pub tucked away and open since 1818. It gets incredibly busy with people coming after work and is one of the most haunted pubs in London! They serve a fantastic beef Wellington too!

Browns

Set alongside Chelsea's upmarket boutiques, Browns is the perfect place to pick up designer women's clothing.

The Pantechnicon Rooms

There's a shortage of good dog-friendly restaurants in London, however Pantechnicon absolutely nails it. It is certainly the best Sunday roast in town.

Smythson

Luxurious leather goods with a very high price tag, but perfect for special occasions and treats.

Kate Spade

The perfect place to pick up a gift for the women in your life - classic handbags and luxurious accessories.

Liz Earle

Premium skincare with a premium price tag, but worth every penny!

Caffe Concerto

Café and restaurant with live music.

Galvin at Windows

Stunning views across Hyde Park, fantastic service, beautiful food and a surprise birthday dessert!

The Good Life Eatery

For all things healthy but delicious! The 'Choc Norris' smoothie (Almond milk, raw cacao, avocado, banana, almond hazelnut butter) is an excellent choice...

The Orange

Who wouldn't enjoy a whole roast cow?! The Sunday roast at The Orange is certainly generously sized...

Duke of York Square

Watching Wimbledon on a sunny day in Duke of York Square is a great way to pass the day! There is also a market every Saturday selling upmarket, handmade products and food.

The Goring Hotel

A luxurious spot for upmarket afternoon tea and beautiful rooms for a romantic getaway.

Startisans

In Duke of York Square Monday to Sunday, Startisans is a hub for start-up food stalls specialising in quirky, imaginative meals.

KX

KX (pronounced Kicks) is a private members health club for elite clients on Draycott Avenue, with a spa, gym and restaurant. Well-known for its famous yet discrete members.
