Neibourhood Guide: Chelsea


Chelsea is one of the most exclusive areas of London and with shows like ‘Made In Chelsea’ on television it’s become an area that’s synonymous with luxury, designer brands and envious wealth. Of course, this means that the majority of hotels in Chelsea aren’t within many tourist’s budgets but with discount hotels in West End London this needn’t be a problem. Even if you aren’t a fan of reality TV, the Piccadilly London West End hotel is near enough to Chelsea that a short journey on the London Underground will place you in the centre of the things. There’s lots to see and do in Chelsea and it isn’t just an area that’s reserved for those with money to spend. In fact, Chelsea can and does offer something for everyone.

About Chelsea


Chelsea is one of London’s most affluent neighbourhoods and it is a popular place for families and professionals, highlighted by the impressive townhouses and apartments that line the streets. Though you’re unlikely to find a standard group of young Londoners or students living in the area, it’s a great neighbourhood to live in and visit, albeit a little pricey to get on the property ladder. In terms of location, Chelsea has everything; great transport links are short travel times to other main London neighbourhoods and the Piccadilly London West End hotel, large parks nearby and a great deal of high end bars and restaurants for drinking and dining in style.

There are a number of London Underground stations in Chelsea which makes travelling around the city extremely easy. Earl’s Court, Gloucester Road, South Kensington, Sloane Square and Fulham Broadway are all nearby. Several bus routes service the area too.
