Cabmen’s Shelter Chelsea

We had a fantastic morning celebrating the restoration of the Cabmen’s Shelter in Chelsea, next to Albert Bridge which is enjoying a new lease of life as a public café. HOLT Patron, HRH The Duke of Gloucester, has attended the launches of many of the other surviving shelters restored over the last 40 years and was pleased to continue the tradition for the launch of ‘Café Pier.’ (It is named as it is close to Cadogan Pier)

His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester cut the ribbon and made a speech, alongside local pupils from Christchurch & Holy Trinity CofE Primary School who read out poems that they had written about the project. As part of HOLT’s Places programme several local schools had visited the works in progress to learn about the history of Victorian cab drivers.
