Choose a holiday apartment in London ChelseaVisitors to London can do no better than to base themselves in the upscale Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, which is at the heart of everything the London tourist is likely to want, from entertainment and shopping opportunities to easy access to all the major must-see sights this thriving capital city has to offer. With hotel accommodation so expensive, renting an apartment in the borough is a convenient and cost-effective way to enjoy a London holiday.
Royalty first settled in the area in the 1600s, when William III resided in Kensington Palace. In 1819, Queen Victoria was born in the palace and lived there until she came to the throne in 1837. Because of her love of the area, the title "Royal Borough" was bestowed upon Kensington, which merged with neighboring Chelsea in 1965.
During the 1980s, the Royal Borough was propelled into the international spotlight by local resident Diana Spencer, who would become Diana, Princess of Wales, and who lead the upper-class "Sloane Ranger" fashion movement, named after the borough's Sloane Square, where many of the world's most wealthy and famous reside.
Located in the west of London and bounded by the River Thames in the south of the borough, Chelsea is served by excellent public transportation options in the form of buses, the London Underground and taxis, which provide quick, easy and reliable access to the rest of the city.
