Sloane Square is a gorgeous plaza in the midst of one of London’s most affluent and exclusive neighborhoods. Theaters and opera houses enclose the square, which has an elegant fountain at its core. Check out the impressive houses bordering the park in an area known for the so-called Sloanies or Sloane Rangers.
Sit on a bench near the fountain and read a book in the shade of a tree. The water feature is known as the Venus Fountain and was sculpted by English artist Gilbert Ledward in 1953. Look for the engraving at the fountain’s base of King Charles II and his lover Nell Gwyn.
The plaza’s other key monument is the Chelsea War Monument, which stands in the shape of a cross. Read the plaque honoring those who died in the Great War.
Browse the items on display in some of the designer stores inside the historic redbrick buildings facing the plaza. Surrounding the square are upscale and iconic structures. Explore the many sections of the famous department store Peter Jones, established in 1936.
For a sense of the local culture, watch films depicting the upper crust of London society. The reality television series Made in Chelsea reflects the typical idiosyncrasies of the area. For a more high-brow view of the district, attend a provocative or daring play at the Royal Court Theatre and dine at its restaurant.
Reflect upon the long history of the square, which was designed along with the rest of the area in the late 18th century. It is free to enter and open to the public at all times.
Sloane Square stands between Chelsea and Knightsbridge, a little west of central London. Ride the London Underground to the plaza’s namesake station or get a bus to a surrounding stop. Make sure to visit nearby highlights such as the Saatchi Gallery, Cadogan Hall and the National Army Museum. Royal Hospital Chelsea and the Ranelagh Gardens just south of the square host the Chelsea Flower Show every year in May.
