In an enviable location close to the King’s Road, Chelsea Harbour Hotel sits overlooking the marina. As boats bob by in the summer sun, you could be forgiven for thinking you were somewhere else entirely. But this London spa hotel sits in one of the most fashionable parts of the city. Not far from Vivienne Westwood’s original World’s End shop and famed for its 1960s fashion credentials. So pop on your Mary Quants and head to the riverside, this is the place for a stylish spa day or break…
