Renowned through London’s swinging 1960’s Chelsea was the centrepiece for alternative culture and arts. Artists have always loved the area and previous residents have included Dante Gabriel Rossetti, J. M. W. Turner, James McNeill Whistler and James Webb to name but a few.
The area now has some of the most affluent and high-profile residents with Chelsea boasting some of the most beautiful and attractive period properties in Prime Central London. True to its origins in art, The Saatchi Gallery is now based in the cosmopolitan, pedestrianised shopping at Duke of York Square moments from Sloane Square on the infamous King’s Road. The area further boasts some of the finest dining and restaurants include The Ivy Garden, La Famiglia as well as the Michelin-starred Bibendum.
Internationally renowned for its luxury shopping, Knightsbridge boasts some of the most well-known and exclusive stores in the world. Dominated by Harrods, the area boasts a plethora of boutique stores on Sloane Street including Chanel, Jimmy Choo, Malono Blahnik as well as a Prada to name but a few.
The area is also internationally famed as a cultural and architectural centrepiece with The Natural History Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum close by. Knightsbridge is ideally positioned providing immediate access to the wide-open green spaces of Hyde Park where activities include horse riding, running, walking and even boating on the Serpentine.
Not to be overshadowed, Belgravia is the home to English Royalty with Buckingham Place being the primary residence. Unsurprisingly, Belgravia is also home to the upper classes and social elite. The area contains some of the most prestigious property in Prime Central London being mostly imposing white stucco fronted period buildings as depicted by the architecture of Eaton Square, Chester Square and Belgrave Square.
