Chelsea This fancy neighbourhood is divided by King’s road, originally Charles II’s private route from St James’s Palace, this now acts as the catwalk for Chelsea’s smartest men and women. Chelsea is the perfect place for an upmarket staying in town. The village certainly lives up to its illustrious name, with charming properties, elegant shopping and green spaces. High-end designers and private galleries are concentrated toward the Sloane Square end of King’s road and on the luxurious Sloan Street, home of the most glam houses in the world. A lovely delicatessen market runs very Saturday Morning next to the Duke of York Piazza. You will also enjoy the smallest street, like Walton Street, Beauchamp Place or Pont Street as they capture Chelsea’s charming character and the quintessence of the modern-traditional English design more than anywhere else in the capital.
