Nailed it: Impeccable #MIC style Thames-side Posing.
I have had suspicions for some time now that this world is split into two types of people, those who wear their heart on their sleeves and openly adore Made in Chelsea; the love affairs, the tiffs, the bad acting and on the other side of the fence people who pretend they don’t secretly feel great affection for Binkie, Jamie and chums.
Luckily I had a visit from Emily Taylor this weekend who most definitely falls into the first camp, so what better way to spend a rare sunny Saturday afternoon than on The Made in Chelsea’s Walking Tour.
It was very exciting being greeted in Sloane Square by our guide Quentin Chutney Hobnobs, who assured us he was known in the Royal Borough as ‘Quinkie’. As we walked up the King’s Road we saw all the great sites: the cafe Millie likes to drink hot chocolate, the Beni Hanna where Spencer was left with the bill after Louise did her signature storm out and even the lingerie shop where Andy made pervy comments towards Lucy and Rosy. Errr, probably don’t invite Andy to a sexy lingerie store then Lucy, what are you thinking!? So as you can probably tell, it is safe to say we were having a bloomin’ great time!
The other thing I liked about the tour was the mix of history, geography and non-#mic-related-celebrity goss which was casually slipped in like a parent hiding nutritious veggies in a naughty curry. For example, did you know that the average house price in Chelsea is £4million?? That at the Kings Rd Farmers market it’s not just bijoux pastry, but you can purchase oysters with your champagne? And most excitingly for all of you Mary Poppins/Retro Rock fans out there - the fact that Julie Andrews used to live on Cheyne walk next to Keith Richards!!?? Super-cali-frajalistic or what!?
So there you go guys, you get a bit of extra bang for your buck on this tour, it’s not all Andy and Spencer, (although obviously that would be WONDERFUL) and now I have given all you pretend non-fans a reason to experience it too!
For more information, have a looksie here, and a heads up to all you bargain hunters, I got my ticket on Y plan for a tenner, which is a snatch!
