A Local’s Guide to Chelsea

If you’re after a shopping hit, a stroll down immaculate Kings Road won’t disappoint. Here you’ll find a string of slick restaurants, over 160 shops, designer boutiques like Ganni and The Kooples, and many fancy gastropubs.

If you’re feeling peckish, there are plenty of spots to dine alfresco in Chelsea’s Sloane Street. Whether you fancy a taste of the French Bistro menu at Colbert or some plant-based Mac n Cheese from the Wulf & Lamb, Chelsea’s got flavours to cure everyone’s cravings.

Scope out some of London’s prettiest streets or immerse yourself in the enchanting grounds of Chelsea Physic Garden. With over 5000 varieties of flowers and plants, this iconic garden is a horticulturist’s paradise. The garden is home to beautifully presented landscapes and is the only botanic garden in Britain focused on medicinal and herbal plants, making it a noteworthy attraction.

For the full Chelsea experience, reserve a table at the Bluebird. Famous for its stunning surroundings and interior, the Bluebird serves delicious European dishes all day long and has a long list of perfectly handcrafted cocktails to get you feeling chilled.

While you’re in the area, take a 10-minute ride to Knightsbridge for even more glitz and glamour. Chelsea taxis too expensive? Try booking a minicab with Addison Lee instead.
