Royal Roots: Ian Towning named his store after his mother's royal ancestors

Tracing its roots back to 1976 when owner Ian Towning established his Chelsea Antiques Market, the Bourbon Hanby Arcade opened 21 years later on the corner of Sydney Street and King's Road and boasts one of London’s largest selections of fine antiques and antique jewellery.

Taking its name from Towning’s royal ancestors on his mother’s side, the Bourbon Hanby Arcade – the only remaining antiques emporium in central Chelsea – also offers jewellery repair and remakes, an antiques investment consultancy, and valuation for insurance purposes.

Whether you're in the mood for some shopping or just looking for fun things to do in Chelsea, be sure to include this amazing arcade on your London travel itinerary.
