Chelsea - London Neighborhood


Definition: Once a center of innovation in the 19th century when the area was a veritable Victorian artists' colony, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones lived in the neighborhood that has since lost in youth culture and settled into a small town atmosphere in the midst of the huge city. Chelsea is famous for the King's Road for the bohemian sixties and punks in the 1970s. It's a wealthy area like Kensington and Knightsbridge. The area also has Chelsea Football Club, which has money bestowed on it by a Russian millionaire.

Location: South west London
