I love the Royal Court, and always relish the opportunity to have a drink in the bar before the performance. If you want to have something to eat, then I can recommend the soup, but book a table if you want something more leisurely. The...More

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
