London is one of the world’s most visited cities in the world, and we can definitely see why! You have the colossal Big Ben that stares you down as you walk by Westminster Bridge. The London Eye sits right on the banks of the famous River Thames and offers dramatic views of the beautiful, historic city and of course you have the beloved palaces, filled with history, opulence and wonderful sights. The neighbourhood of Chelsea smirks along the banks of River Thames with its bohemian-turned-businessman reputation. Influential bands like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones lent their stardom to Chelsea during the 60s. Today, Chelsea is very much considered a fashionable district with a natural reflex of strolling through the boutique shops along King’s Road or visiting Duke of York Square, home to one of Europe’s largest Zara stores. If you’re a football (soccer) fan, visit the home of the champions Stamford Bridge where you may just spot a player. As for food, Chelsea is synonymous with being a food mecca, with countless pubs, restaurants, and bars to try. The Royal Court Theatre is known as a breeding ground for writing talent with acclaimed playwrights like Mike Bartlett and David Hare producing plays for the theatre over the last decade. Whatever your mission is, Chelsea will have it. If not, I’m sure you will find something equally as exciting to see and do. To make your trip a breeze here is a carefully selected list of top Airbnb vacation rentals for your benefit.
