Earls Court Exhibition Centre - 0.06 miles

Earls Court Conference Centre is a modern, purpose-built venue for between 100 and 250 delegates.

Chelsea Football Club - 0.81 miles
Chelsea have always done things differently. Their beginnings were certainly unusual; the club had a ground before they were formed, and were elected to the Football League without even playing a match. Success, though, wasn't so easy to obtain and 1955's league title was the club's first major honour. 1970 witnessed more silverware in the form of the FA Cup and the European Cup-Winners Cup followed a year later. But the 'golden era' was short-lived and by 1975 the 'twilight years' had begun with the club struggling both on and off the pitch. Fact: Stamford Bridge was originally offered to Fulham to play there but they declined the chance and so Chelsea took the chance instead.

Kensington Palace - 0.93 miles
Kensington Palace in London is a working Royal residence. Of great historical importance, Kensington Palace was the favourite residence of successive sovereigns until 1760. It was also the birthplace and childhood home of Queen Victoria. Today Kensington Palace accommodates the offices and private apartments of a number of members of the Royal Family. Although managed by Historic Royal Palaces, the Palace is furnished with items from the Royal Collection.

Fulham Football Club - 1.64 miles
Like Bolton, Fulham began life as a church side - the Fulham St Andrew's Church Sunday School FC - back in 1879. But they became just plain Fulham FC in 1888 and in 1896 they would take up residence at Craven Cottage. Their history was not a glorious one until they achieved promotion to the top-flight for the first time in 1959, with club heroes Johnny Haynes and George Cohen playing massive parts in keeping them there until 1968. The Seventies in Division Two would also be interesting, with the likes of Bobby Moore, George Best and Rodney Marsh playing their aging trade there.

Queens Park Rangers Football Club - 1.99 miles
Loftus Road has a compact feel, as the ground is totally enclosed, with supporters being close to the pitch. An unusual aspect is that all four stands are roughly the same height, their roofs meet at all four corners with no gaps. The South Africa Road Stand on one side of the ground, has a larger upper tier, compared to the lower tier, with a row of executive boxes running across the middle. There are a couple of supporting pillars in this stand. The other side, the Ellerslie Road Stand, is single tiered, with a television gantry suspended below its roof. Both ends are similar looking two tiered stands.

Buckingham Palace - London - 2.29 miles
Besides being the official London residence of The Queen, Buckingham Palace is also the busy administrative headquarters of the monarchy and has probably the most famous and easily recognisable façade of any building in the world. The Palace is a working building and the centrepiece of Britains constitutional monarchy. It houses the offices of those who support the day-to-day activities and duties of The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh and their immediate family. The Palace is also the venue for great Royal ceremonies, State Visits and Investitures, all of which are organised by the Royal Household.

Apsley House - London - 2.48 miles
From April 2004, English Heritage has been given responsibility for the care and presentation of Apsley House. Home to Arthur Wellesley, the first Duke of Wellington, and his descendants, this internationally important property has for over 200 years been known colloquially as ‘No 1 London’, as it was the first house to be encountered after passing the tollgates at the top of Knightsbridge.
