Serving Sloane Square Since 1892

image145

Haines began as a wooden box in the middle of Sloane Square, where our current owner’s great-grandfather started out selling newspapers. Our historic convenience store has been in the family for over 125 years, selling newspapers, magazines, tobacco products, hot and cold beverages, stationery and confectionery.


Our current design is by Thomas Heatherwick, most famous for designing the Olympic Cauldron and the new Routemaster – in fact, our humble kiosk has even been a part of an exhibition at the V&A Museum!


Located in the hub of Chelsea, we’re just one mile from Buckingham Palace and around the corner from the Royal Hospital – pop by and say hello next time you’re in the area!
