    Chelsea Cruise 45th Anniversary. IT'S BACK ON.

    As a lot of you know already as you have seen it on Facebook May 30th is the 45th Anniversary of the Chelsea Cruise , It died in the 90s mainly due to the hot hatch crowd . I restarted It back in September 2004 and it's been ok in the summer months but not so good in the winter.

    Hopefuly this is going to be a big one as there's a lot of interest already , someone has arranged for a film crew to be there to capture the whole night and interview some people \/ , If you have nothing to do that night why not come along to see what it's all about. Chelsea Bridge / Battersea Park from 7pm

    Hi Derek, I always thought that for the Chelsea cruise to work, it should focus on maybe 5 or 6 summer meets. April-Sept. Looking forward to the anniversary meet.

    Hopefully, this could be huge! For those who have never attended, make the effort, it'll be worthwhile.....

    You might be right about the cruise having to focus on summer in order to improve the turnout, John, but for that to happen would require some degree of organisation. The fact that the cruise has never had an organiser is a good thing - proper cruising is supposed to happen spontaneously.

    Anyway, as has already been said: May's cruise - be there! But also go to April's and June's &c, &c...

    Hi. Can you clarify if the Battersea area is within the "Congestion charge zone". I only ask for not only me but for those who have never attended and are put off by the mention of all these congestion and LEZ zones. Last Chelsea Cruise I attended was late 1999 and on the way home almost ran over Alastair Stewart as he exited ITV studios and wasn't looking where he was going! I said to my shotgun mate "Isn't that Alistair St...WTF" swerving to miss him.

    It's not in the Congestion Zone but the charge only applies Monday to Friday anyway & if your registered as Historic then you should be exempt from ULEZ as well

    Route will be, over Chelsea Bridge and either carry straight on to Sloane square then left on to Kings Road carry on until just after the Town Hall then turn left on to Oakley Street, up to the lights then left on to the embankment and back around again, or over Chelsea bridge and turn left, down to the lights then it's a right on to Oakley Street down to the lights turn right on to Kings Road down to Sloane Square around the square left into Sloane Street up to the lights at Chelsea Bridge and turn right and do it again.........We want car moving both ways so that the camera men can get it all..............Basically it's a big oblong going both ways.
