About History Street

Take a stroll through London’s history, starting in Roman Londinium. Speak to the Anglo-Saxons who formed the settlement of Chelsea. Then, see the expansion of the area from the Tudor to the Civil War period, and explore the prominent military history of the neighbourhood.

Military history re-enactment groups will be on hand, encouraging visitors to connect with Chelsea’s history as a home of the British Army. Learn about the Crimean and Boer Wars from those who were there. Listen to soldiers of the two World Wars talking about their equipment and rations. And get acquainted with modern-day Army regiments.

Staff and veterans from Waterloo Uncovered will showcase their work on battlefield archaeology, recent findings and welfare support.

Their Finest Hour will be hosting a Digital Collection Day over the weekend. Visitors are invited to bring along their Second World War stories, memories, letters and photos, both physical and digital. The team will digitise and upload the memorabilia to a free-to-access database, to preserve for the future.

We must insist that no items other than those listed above – and especially no potentially dangerous objects – should be brought to this event.
