Chelsea is an affluent area in southwest London, bounded to the south by the River Thames. Its frontage runs from Chelsea Bridge along the Chelsea Embankment, Cheyne Walk, Lots Road and Chelsea Harbour. Its eastern boundary was once defined by the River Westbourne, which is now in a pipe above Sloane Square tube station. The modern eastern boundary is Chelsea Bridge Road and the lower half of Sloane Street, including Sloane Square. To the north and northwest, the area fades into Knightsbridge and Brompton, but it is safe to say that the area north of King's Road as far northwest as Fulham Road is part of Chelsea. The football club Chelsea F.C. is based at Stamford Bridge, which straddles the border between Chelsea and Fulham.The district is almost entirely within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, with the exception of Chelsea Harbour, located within the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. From 1900, and until the creation of Greater London in 1965, it formed the Metropolitan Borough of Chelsea in the County of London.

  • A lot of upscale shopping, many shops, cafes and restaurants. The main street is very long, one can spend a long time walking from one side to the other. 
  • Fashionable district with doroguŝim housing, where, again, love to settle Russian oligarchs from all corners of the former Soviet Union. Sobsno, they made it so expensive district. You can stroll and admire the rich life of someone else.
