ロンドン市内にある数少ないナショナルトラスト所有地の一つで、スローンスクエア駅から徒歩15分ほどです。トーマス・カーライルはそれほど有名ではありませんが、文豪チャールズ・ディケンズの親友だったそうで、彼のファンだったオスカー・ワイルドも19歳の時に一度この家を訪ねて来たのだそうです。ヴィクトリア時代の家具・調度がそのまま残っており興味深く、小さな庭も花盛りで、お天気がよかったので一日中でも外のベンチに座っていられるなぁと思いました(ボランティアのおじさんには5時まで開いているのでずっといていいよ、と言われました、笑)。 I found this place when I visited Our Most Holy Redeemer and St Thomas Moor Church on the same street. This is one of the few National Trust properties which are accessible without a car, being within walking distance from Sloane Square Tube station....More

Deceptively larger than appears from the outside, we had a warm welcome from the staff and an interesting outline of Carlyle and his equally interesting wife, Jane. Fortunately the interior is very much as they left it over 120 years ago and there are don't...More

Having walked passed many elegant terraced houses in Kensington and Chelsea it was a delight to witness the interior of such a well preserved property that transports the visitor back to the Victorian era. It brings the Victorian literary, artistic and social scene to life,...More

Step back in time to Thomas Carlyle's house from Victorian times. Owned by NT...this lovely house in Chelsea is steeped in history. Set on 5 floors with a walled garden which you can access. Staff informative.

Chelsea
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
unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this
showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price
tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down
pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal
