Chelsea Area Guide
Chelsea is the beating heart of all that is chic about London. It benefits from great transport links, shops and restaurants with the postcodes being SW3 and SW10. Chelsea once had a reputation as London's bohemian quarter, the haunt of artists, musicians, radicals, painters and poets. Chelsea has many desirable garden squares and white stucco fronted houses along with historical mansion blocks. The Kings Road remains the major artery through Chelsea and is a shopping mecca for busy locals and tourists.
The Peter Jones department store on Sloane Square marks the beginning of Kings Road, home to a number of high-end fashion stores and small independent retailers along with contemporary antique shops.
