Living in Chelsea
Moving to Chelsea is a dream come true for art-lovers, musos and historians alike. Chelsea has been known to attract many great artists, painters and poets in its time. In the 19th Century, the Cheyne Walk area became known as London’s bohemian quarter, and in the 60s, iconic acts like The Beatles and the Rolling Stones became residents in some of Cheyne Walk’s Chelsea properties.
The area is home to historical landmarks like the Chelsea Royal Hospital and the Chelsea Barracks. The memorials in Chelsea Old Church are another testament to the neighbourhood’s rich and colourful history.
Today, the Chelsea area is known as a hub of influence and innovation; another factor that makes Chelsea property so appealing to overseas buyers.
Notable Streets in Chelsea
The Old Brompton Road, running from South Kensington Underground to Earl’s Court, provides locals with a variety of restaurants and bars to choose from. Here you can enjoy seasonal British food, Spanish tapas or Indian curries. Pubs in the Old Brompton Road are popular after-work social spots, with patrons spilling out into the street in summer, to enjoy the warmer evenings.
Fulham Road runs through Chelsea from the centre of Fulham. The section between Redcliffe Gardens and Drayton Gardens has become colloquially known as ‘The Beach’, favoured for its late-night bars, clubs, and al fresco dining options.
King's Road is another major Chelsea thoroughfare. Once a private royal road used by King Charles II to travel to Kew, it’s now the site of fashionable modern eateries and cafés, including the first UK-based branch of Starbucks, which opened in 1999.
