    6 Quirky Facts About Chelsea

    1. The King’s Road
      Chelsea’s most famous thoroughfare, The King’s Road was the centre of swinging sixties London. Today it’s packed with designer stores, trendy restaurants, cool coffee shops, but there was a time when it was solely for the use of royalty. From the 1600s until 1830 it was a private road, exclusively used by the King to take him from St James Palace to Fulham.
    2. Nice Buns
      Believed to have been invented in the Chelsea Bun House, the lightly spiced doughy ‘Chelsea Buns’ were fruity favourites of George II, George III and Queen Victoria. Sadly, the original shop was demolished in 1839 (boo!). Thankfully, the Chelsea bun lives on and can still be found in Chelsea and bakeries across the UK (yay!).
    3. …was all fields…
      “I remember when all this was fields…” In Chelsea’s case it really was once just fields. Originally a Saxon village and small wharf for bringing goods off the river (the Saxon name,’ Chelceth’ translates as chalky landing place), by the 17th century the area was mostly farmland, most of the food produced was used to feed the hungry and demanding folk of London.
    4. No Gnomes!
      The Royal Chelsea Flower Show (which held its first show in 1913) once had a complete ban on gnomes. In 1990 the cute (and supposedly magical) creatures got given the cold shoulder by the horticultural elite and officially banned from the world’s most famous floral event. But in 2013, after a tide of genuine protests (including from a Gnome Reserve with 2,000 of the critters!) the RHS finally gave way and gnomes were back!
    5. Cool Britannia
      Chelsea has always been at the centre of London fashion, from the tailors that helped dress the Hanoverian kings to 90s Britpop. Famous faces to have made the swanky suburb their home include; Oscar Wilde, Freddie Mercury, Ava Gardner, St Lawrence Olivier, Vivien Leigh, Eric Clapton, Mick Jagger, Bob Marley, Judy Garland, Quentin Crisp, Mary Quant, Steve Coogan and Kylie Minogue.
    6. Best Dressed
      Like that kimono you bought on ebay (never drink while internet shopping!), sooner or later Chelsea always comes back in fashion. Chelsea was the centre of England’s mod scene and the focal point of 60’s fashion, with Mary Quant opening her first shop here. Malcom Maclaren and punk came pogoing down the Kings Road in the 70s. The 80’s saw Chelsea fall out of fashion again until the rise of Britpop and Cool Britannia in the 90s, along with the arrival of Tony Blair and New Labour, saw Chelsea up its game as the new ‘Twitterati’ and media savvy ‘slebs’ made the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea cool once again.

Once a market garden that fed the city, Chelsea is now a hub of fine food, incredible restaurants, funky design and some of the coolest addresses in London. Buns, boots, flower shows, everything wants a slice of Chelsea kudos, from the punks and pensioners to popstars and TV glitterati. This is the London lifestyle that feeds magazines and movies and remains at the heart of Cool Britannia.
