Serviced apartments Chelsea: Area guide to staying in Chelsea
Vuitton, Versace, Jimmy Choo, Chanel, Prada, Harvey Nichols, Cartier…. Chelsea is where the serious fashionistas and shoppers go to fill their bags and look glamourous. The Royal Borough of Chelsea was once the epicentre of Swinging London and the love of fashion and fun lingers on in a big way.
Look beyond the fabulous frocks and find the Saatchi Gallery, with its stimulating collection of works by upcoming and established contemporary artists. Similarly the Royal Court Theatre has earned a reputation for bringing the best modern theatre to the attention of the world.
And if none of that takes your fancy, perhaps a match at Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea Football Club will make you happy. If you can’t get a ticket to a game (and it’s very difficult), enjoy a guided tour.
Home to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, this beautiful venue has an eclectic programme of classical, contemporary, jazz, folk and world music concerts. It hosts over 300 events every year so there’s bound to be something to delight music lovers.
The world’s most famous flower show happens every May and sets Chelsea alight with colour and fragrance. Hosted in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, the show is one of London’s most prestigious events.
One of the more relaxed places to watch the Chelsea set strut their stuff, Megan’s is consistently voted one of the area’s top places for breakfast, brunch, lunch and – yes, this is a thing – coconut cappuccino.
