Attractions and Places to Visit in South West London

Churchill War Rooms
Ironic, really, because Churchill hated this underground bunker, converted from civil service storerooms, which doubled as a Cabinet War Room during air raids. The working rooms are much as they were left when closed after the War, and are fascinating to explore.

Football Stadium Tours
Hour-long tours of Chelsea FC’s Stamford Bridge, plus museum visit, include the home dressing room, press room and pitch. For a rare example of a surviving 19-century stadium visit Craven Cottage, home to London’s oldest professional club, Fulham, and soon to add a magnificent new river frontage and walkway, through tours will continue throughout the process.

Hampton Court Palace
Thomas Wolsey’s whopping Tudor palace on the Thames became a royal residence for King Henry VIII. Add in the Baroque additions by Christopher Wren, a superb art collection, formal gardens and Maze (a favourite with children) and it makes for a busy day.

Royal Albert Hall – Secret History Tour
The world’s first bodybuilding contest, starring a strongman with a mail-order dumbbell business; an indoor marathon with just two competitors running on coconut matting to the strains of a military band; 11,000 golden letter ‘A’s built into the décor at Queen Victoria’s request and in memory of her much-mourned consort, Prince Albert.
