London area of SW10 guide

What to do and where to stay in London's SW10 neighbourhood

Centred on the famous Brompton Cemetery and taking up the area between West Kensington, Earl's Court, Chelsea and Fulham Broadway, SE10's West Brompton is a largely residential no-mans-land in West London. The Brompton Cemetery, with its beautiful basilica and row upon row of rickety graves, is managed by the Royal Parks and is one of the Magnificent Seven - the term applied to the seven large cemeteries in London. Rumour has it that the children's author Beatrix Potter, who lived in The Boltons nearby, took the names of many of her animal characters from tombstones in the cemetery. Besides the much-loved cemetery - which is overlooked by Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea Football Club - West Brompton is best known today for its tube and railway station and the tiny Finborough Theatre.
