Area Description: "Chelsea is an upmarket neighbourhood equivalent to that of New York's Upper East Side or the 16th arrondissement of Paris, with stylish and unique homes to match. It is a wealthy area of London that overlooks the River Thames from Chelsea Bridge near Battersea, right along the Chelsea Embankment to Chelsea Harbour, a perfect spot for a romantic evening with its many restaurants and bars.
The most famous street in the area is the King's Road, which takes its name from the time it was Charles II's private thoroughfare, and is one of the Capital's most popular streets with a good variety of shops and cafes to explore. At the North East end, you'll find Sloane Square which also has many high end shops, such as Tiffany & Co. and Hugo Boss as well as the impressive Saatchi Gallery at the Duke of York's Square. The King's Road is home to many fine dining restaurants, including Gordon Ramsay, Hache, Tom's Kitchen and The Bluebird, which is often noted as the place to be seen in Chelsea.
This area oozes elegance and a luxury lifestyle, and would be a recommended choice for both families and couples looking for a highly memorable city break."
