Chelsea Hotels - London

Mini guide to Chelsea

     

Chelsea is an area full of trendy shops and restaurants, particularly those offering Chinese, Thai and Indian cuisine, as well as hip bars and clubs. On 90 Lots Road, you will find the famous 606 Jazz Club, which calls itself the best jazz club in Europe - a must visit for jazz buffs.

For shopping enthusiasts, the King's Road should not be missed. The road was originally used by King Charles II as a private thoroughfare to link Whitehall with Hampton Court, but now it is a trendy shopping district boasting cutting-edge fashion, designer boutiques, antique shops and trendy restaurants. Shops along Sloane Street and around Sloane Square are particularly popular with the wealthy.

The name Chelsea brings to mind the Chelsea Football Club, the largest football club in London. It is possible to visit the club on non-match days and take a behind-the-scenes tour; visit the changing rooms and have your picture taken next to your favorite player's jersey. Access is via Fulham Broadway or West Brompton tube stations.

The Chelsea Flower Show, held each year in May, is the largest, most prestigious and most popular flower show in the world. In addition to the floral show, there are stands selling everything from plants and flowers to potpourri and rare gardening books.

Another market favourite is the Chelsea Antiques Market, located on the King's Road. There are usually over 120 shops and stalls selling everything from books to jewellery.

This trendy area is very popular with the young and upwardly mobile. It's a great area to stay in, with easy access to the main tourist spots in South Kensington and Knightsbridge. Various tube lines converge here, with access to Piccadilly, Circle and District lines.
