Welcome to Chelsea

London, United Kingdom

Chelsea, situated in the heart of West London, is famous all over the world for its expensive prices, high-end lifestyle and a football club that generates very strong feelings. The average income is over £100,000 a year, making Chelsea one of the richest places in the world, let alone London.

Finding affordable student housing in Chelsea is only for the brave. A double room will probably cost around £200 per week, with many flats costing thousands of pounds a month. The area is very pretty, with lots of old classic London townhouses and newly renovated flats situated along the north bank of the river Thames.

Living in Chelsea is convenient for studying at the The Royal College of Art, The London School of Dramatic Art or a group of smaller collages. Chelsea is reasonably connected to the city via a short walk to the following station: Gloucester Road (District/Piccadilly), Earl's Court (Circle/District/Piccadilly), South Kensington (Circle/District/Piccadilly) and West Brompton (Overground/District)

The neighbours

The area is 71% white, young and rich, with it now full of posh fools popularised by Channel 4 reality show Made in Chelsea. Other icons include Chelsea Pensioners and Sloan Rangers (google them!).

You'll fall in love with

Chelsea football club. Successful, full of stars and soon to be playing in a new purpose-built stadium, Chelsea F.C are a good bandwagon to get on.

Interesting points

Stamford Bridge, of course. The iconic football stadium of the local (but international) team is worth a visit while it's still open.

The lifestyle

Exclusive and upper-class. Chelsea is for people that like the finer things in life. Expect to find it hard to shop in an affordable supermarket, but easy to window shop for designer handbags.
