Chelsea: More than just football in Chelsea

Chelsea: More than just football in ChelseaBackground

There can be few people planning a move to London who have not heard of Chelsea football club, even if they are not prone to spending their weekends shouting on their favourite football team.

However, the Royal London Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has far more to offer its residents than just one of the best football clubs in the UK.

Indeed, the west-Central London borough is perfectly situated to allow its locals to lap up everything the capital has to offer, even if sport is the last thing on their mind.

The borough is one of the most densely populated areas of the city, which could mean that there is always something going on.

And as it is located next to the City of Westminster, professionals could also find themselves with an easy commute to work in the mornings, while there are also plenty of museums and department stores, such as the world-famous Harrods, to keep them entertained at the weekends.

Property

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is one of the most exclusive addresses in London, meaning that house prices in the area can be high.

Indeed, the Land Registry states that the average house price in Chelsea stood at £741,242 in August of this year, which may be too steep for many people, although this is a fall of 11.9 per cent on the same month's figures in 2008.

Broken down, a detached property in Chelsea will see buyers forking out an average of £2,794,244, while a semi-detached home still costs over a million pounds, at £1,983,107.

Meanwhile, a terraced house in Chelsea costs an average of £1,660,931 and a maisonette or flat will set people back a typical £613,900.

With this in mind, people may find that property to rent in Chelsea is a far cheaper option than taking on a mortgage and buying a home in the area.

Rental prices in the area could be far more favourable, standing at a typical £1,634 a month for a studio apartment, £2,301 a month for a one-bedroom property, £3,553 for two bedrooms and £7,133 for three bedrooms.

Transport

Due to its location almost in the heart of London, Britons planning a move to Chelsea will find that they can enjoy good transport links.

The area has good access to the whole of the capital from the District and Circle Line which runs through it. In additions, there is also access to the Piccadilly line from Knightsbridge Tube station, while there are National Rail links at Imperial Wharf.

In addition to this, Britons will be able to make use of the buses and taxis which operate within the borough.

Amenities

Stamford Bridge, home of Chelsea Football Club, is situated close to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, which could make it ideally situated for football fans planning a move to the home of their favourite team.

But in addition to living close to some of the most exciting matches likely to take place in the sporting calendar, football widows will still be able to keep themselves entertained in the borough.

Online resource Spoonfed notes that Chelsea became an iconic location following the Swinging Sixties "when the Kings Road was seen as the epicentre of Cool Britannia".

The Kings Road continues to be a popular draw, boasting a wide selection of shops, bars and restaurants, as well as a busy night life.

And people may also wish to pay a visit to the Natural History Museum, which will be located just down the road from their new home in Chelsea.

With so much on offer, Britons may find they hardly have time to spare to explore the rest of the city.
