Chelsea is widely regarded as one of the most exclusive parts of London. Bounded by the River Thames to the south, Chelsea is home to some of the most expensive property in the London area - it's home to footballers, film stars and countless others that work in central London.
There are lots of landmarks in and around the Chelsea area, one of the most famous landmarks being King's Road - a place that has become synonymous with fashion and style. Although today it's classed as one of the most glamorous, upmarket shopping streets in the whole of London, there are a few little-known facts that even locals would be surprised at! The very first Starbucks to open in the UK was on King's Road, back in 1999. It was also home to the very first artificial ice rink over 100 years ago in 1876.
It's not just the King's Road area that makes living in Chelsea desirable - there are also other areas such as Sloane Square where the property is in high demand.
It doesn't matter if shopping happens to be your passion or even fine dining. There's something for everyone in Chelsea - every taste, every desire is catered for somewhere, by someone.
Public transport around the Chelsea area and to the rest of the city of London is well organised - there are multiple underground stations in the local area along with an abundance of bus services. If travelling by bus or train is out of the question, you're sure to be able to hail one of the many famous black cabs that operate in the area to get where you need to go.
