Come along on Saturday 11th May for a Treasure Hunt around Historic Chelsea!
The treasure hunts are a good way to get to know the history of an area whilst meeting and getting to know new people.
About the area
The word Chelsea originates from the Old English word; 'Chelchith' which means 'landing place (on the river) for chalk or limestone'. Since the 17th Century, Chelsea has been known as a popular location for the wealthy and was described as 'a village of palaces'. Today the average property will set you back £1.3m. The road that runs through the area; Kings Road is named after King Charles II when it was his private road from St James's Palace to Fulham.
How it works
We will be meeting up at 1:45pm, when you will be randomly divided into teams of 5 people.
We will then give each team 15-20 written clues which you have to find the answers for. The answers can be found on blue plaques or monuments around the streets of Chelsea.
It's up to your team to work together to find the answers. You can answer them in any order and we will provide a map of the area to help you. It's not a race, so you can take your time getting to know the area and your team mates.
The team to get the most correct answers and then return to base (a local pub) will win a £10 gift voucher each!
If more than one team gets the top score, there will be a tie break question back at the pub.
A £5 gift voucher will be given to each member of the team coming in second place and a prize will be given to each member of the team with the best team name.
We will be charging £4 per person to take part, apart from '2013 Full Member's where it is free!
We will be marking the scores and presenting the prizes back at local pub at 4:30pm.
If you can't see us inside the square, please call or text.
