Jerome K Jerome Residence Chelsea Bridge Road

Jerome K. Jerome (1859-1927), the author best known for his book Three Men In A Boat, lived for a time in a flat on Chelsea Bridge Road, while writing his most famous work. Jerome's achievements are commemorated by a blue plaque.

Chelsea Bridge Road is now one of London's most exclusive addresses and a man of Jerome K. Jerome's modest means would no longer be able to afford the exorbitant rents of properties in the area nowadays. A one bedroom apartment on Chelsea Bridge Road costs around 1.6 million pounds (2014 prices).

Chelsea Bridge Road is close to the River Thames, Chelsea Bridge, Chelsea Physic Garden, the Saatchi Gallery, the Lister Hospital, the Royal Hospital Chelsea, the National Army Museum and Ranelagh Gardens.

The closest tube station to Chelsea Bridge Road is Sloane Square on the District & Circle Line. Bus #137 runs past the property.
