August 14, 2012, 10:55 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Back for its 62 nd year, Chelsea Antiques Fair gets bigger and better every year. This year 36 specialist dealers feature in the show offering items including 19 th and 20 th century porcelain and pottery, fine gem set jewellery, oak furniture, silverware, Chinese Antiques, Art Deco furniture, fine maps and prints, Persian carpets and rare glassware.
Although prices can sky rocket as dealers look for the highest bidders, prices start at a mere £20, so all budgets are catered for. Chelsea Antiques Fair runs from 19-23 September.
Chelsea Town Hall provides a fitting location. Boasting marble columns, chandeliers and original oil paintings, this opulent building is a far cry from your average town hall.
Hotels in Chelsea are renowned for similar opulence and luxury and unfortunately a corresponding price tag, but for antiques hunters looking to save money on accommodation in order to splurge on antiques, HotelMap is the perfect tool for finding a nearby bargain.
Through this easy to use, interactive map, HotelMap users can quickly find London hotels suited to their budget and in their chosen location. Users can filter by price, search according to vicinity to landmarks, areas, attractions and stations with rates, discounts and star ratings clearly displayed on hotel icons overlaid on a map of the capital.
Close to Chelsea Town Hall is the four-star Regency Hotel. Rooms are available at this hotel from £109 per night, thanks to an exclusive HotelMap discount of 62%. This period building has several antique features of its own and comes highly recommended by LondonTown.com.com users.
Opening 29 August, the Ampersand Hotel will be Kensington's newest hotel. This stylish four-star property is housed in a period property dating back to 1888 so should appeal to history buffs. The interior is modern but draws on the area's great musical history for inspiration. Room rates start at £153 per night including a 47% discount to HotelMap users.
