Upscale shopping

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.

Chelsea is upmarket take a stroll off the Main Street & walk down the lovely posh streets. Also have a look at the Estate Agents... More

Chelsea is one of my favourite parts of London in the sense that it is sure to entertain you! The rich yet somewhat miserable characters that you come across will definitely put a smile on your face. I mean, come on, how much money do you need before you can afford to smile? Otherwise, Chelsea also has a cool market,... More

Part of the Kensington and Chelsea borough, Chelsea stretches near the river and is centred around King's road and it's tube station. Expect quietness after 9pm weekdays, even weekends as all the show offs living there would have went to bed. Mostly packed with foreigners who like living in Chelsea for 'status', has lots of shops and restaurants on the... More

£13.40 for a plastic glass of Pimms. This says it all about Chelsea. While the plants and the gardens are a joy to behold, it is advisable to bring your own food and drink as the rest is a total rip off.

the Chelsea Show is now becoming very tired and dated. the Rock restaurant used to be sleek and well run and the service was excellent but recently over the last few years has been a shambles - actually a joke service but the price is not. The TV presenters are scruffy and aggressive and 'in your face' - I thought... More

I have just attended on one of the members' days, Tuesday 24th May 2016. Luckily the weather stayed dry but on a more typical day you might need layers and waterproofs, I would not suggest heels, a lot is on grass which gets churned up. Even on a members' day it is still very busy and so a certain amount... More

We started our walk from Sloane Square and looked at the Saachi Gallery with the exhibition to the Rolling Stones. The street is full of shops and restaurants. The one place I have always wanted to visit is the boutique that Malcolm Mclaren and Vivian Westwood owned which called Sex which is now called Worlds End and still owned by... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
