Wednesday May 4th Artistic Chelsea 10:30am-12:45pm
Home to the famous and infamous, Chelsea attracted artists and writers as well as some of the finest domestic architects to create the perfect places to live and work. On this flat walking tour around the delightful streets of Chelsea, we will pass the former studio houses of artists including John Singer Sargent, Holman Hunt and Rossetti, the site of Whistler's famous White House and the houses designed by Norman Shaw, Godwin, Ashbee and Charles Rennie Mackintosh. There will be lots of other famous names too! Find out why Oscar Wilde described one street as "full of wonderful possibilities" and its link to a famous painting now in Tate Britain.
