Stories of Murder and Satanic Rituals in SW3 - A Guided Tour with Lauren Barnett
Sunday 11th October 2020 at 2:30 pm

What could be less horrifying than the King’s Road on a sunny afternoon? The area’s glistening shop fronts and fashionable history may seem immune to horror, but during the Swinging Sixties, Chelsea was home to the Rolling Stones and Mary Quaint and subsequently the area provided the backdrop for many classic horror films including A Clockwork Orange, Dracula A.D. 1972 and Theatre of Blood among others…. On this walk we will discover how the tensions of Chelsea’s Swinging London inspired tales of terror from satanic rituals to gruesome murder.
