Dreadful weather couldn't spoil our visit to the Physic Garden....we attended a magnificent wedding there on 22nd September. It is a magical place but I would recommend visiting during good weather if you can!

Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's
upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops,
eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at
its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely
unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this
showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price
tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down
pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal
