London area of West Brompton guide

What to do and where to stay in London's West Brompton neighbourhood

Centred on the famous Brompton Cemetery and taking up the area between West Kensington, Earl's Court, Chelsea and Fulham Broadway, West Brompton is a largely residential no-mans-land in West London. The Brompton Cemetery, with its beautiful basilica and row upon row of rickety graves, is managed by the Royal Parks and is one of the Magnificent Seven - the term applied to the seven large cemeteries in London. Rumour has it that the children's author Beatrix Potter, who lived in The Boltons nearby, took the names of many of her animal characters from tombstones in the cemetery. Besides the much-loved cemetery, West Brompton is best known today for its tube and railway station, the tiny Finborough Theatre and the ever-popular Troubadour, a charmingly bohemian restaurant and live music venue.
