Antiquarius is the antique market with several vendors under one roof. With the exchange rate (and even before the dollar went down) there weren't any bargains but beautiful things to look at.

Across the street is a nice pub for lunch but I can't remember the name. You'll like the area.

Carrybean,

the pub would most likely be the Trafalgar next to the cinema.
Good burgers there.

Just be sure to take lots of money or have good balances on your credit cards. In our experience, it is one of the most expensive areas in an already-expensive city.

But very, very nice!

You are not kidding, Ackislander!!!

We are still working out the details. It seems that we are now wanting to use the apartment for the whole week (plus a day) since they will be charging us for 7 nights instead of the 5 nights we requested.

Anyway... now we will be staying in London on Christmas Eve.

Seetheworld-DH, DS and I are planning a trip this spring to visit college daughter and looking at the same area for a flat. One I found is Phoenix House and I am wondering what you are working on if you would not mind sharing. Good luck!

I just spent a week at Phoenix House - it was outstanding and we loved the area. I will post a review of Phoenix House on TripAdvisor.

We had several good meals in the area - including a good noodle/dumpling place on King's Road across from Bluebird and an excellent dinner at Tom's Kitchen.

I still have wonderful memories of the York ham to be found at Partridge's. Sigh.

Hi seetheworld -

Ooh, I'd love to rent a flat in Chelsea. It's a very nice area. There are a lot of great shops, restaurants, and pubs along the King's Road in particular. You'll be just one stop away from Victoria. From there, it's probably about 10-15 minutes to Oxford Street or Piccadilly Circus.

Good luck!
