On & Around the Street

The Magic Of Christmas In Chelsea, London’s Most Beautiful Neighbourhood

Horse and carriage rides

Chelsea, London’s most beautiful neighbourhood, has had a sprinkling of Christmas magic, becoming a winter wonderland with twinkling displays, joyful festive entertainment, and magnificent Christmas decorations adorning Sloane Street and its surrounds.

Sloane Street’s luxury boutiques have been decked out for the festive season and are ready to welcome you with exclusive offers, treats and surprises, as well as expert gifting advice.

Over each weekend in the lead-up to Christmas, roaming entertainment will amplify the festive spirit with carols, seasonal music and performers, while complimentary horse & carriage rides are available to transport you across Sloane Street in a manner that Father Christmas would heartily approve of.

More than 500 additional outdoor seats have been added to create a Winter Wonderland-themed al fresco dining experience across the newly pedestrianised Pavilion Road and the Duke of York Square, with overhead shelter and heaters to protect you from December’s chill.

A magical winter wonderland

Young and old alike will be entranced by Chelsea’s festive transformation. Be sure to experience the glittering walk-through forest of silver birch and pure white magnolia that twinkles with fairy lights, the 36-foot Norway Spruce adorned with shimmering golden bows on Duke of York Square, and the striking 5-foot wreaths and majestic crowns strung across the King’s Road – a historical nod to the Road, which was created for King Charles II, the monarch who ‘brought back Christmas’ after a decade-long ban by Oliver Cromwell.

Punctuate your festive shopping at one of the outdoor tables serving Hans’ Bar & Grill; Wulf & Lamb; The Sea, The Sea and Granger & Co, or pick up some take-away treats from the Road’s butcher, baker, grocer or cheesemonger.

Nutcracker Stilt Walkers

Every Saturday, Duke of York Square will host an outdoor festive food market, full of seasonal delicacies and gifts from artisan traders. Fuel your turn about the stalls with a warming hot chocolate or a tipple from Partridges’ popular mulled punch tricycle.

And, if you’d rather savour Chelsea’s Christmas offerings from home, you can make use of a dedicated zero-emission e-cargo bike offering free delivery until Christmas Eve. With orders insured to a value of £10,000, every Christmas essential, from turkeys to toys and treasures can be swiftly delivered within a three-mile radius, allowing you to shop at home and enjoy contact-free delivery.
