The Worst Things in Chelsea, Greater London*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Chelsea.

The Worst Things
  • I'm only putting this in 'worst' because I find the huge disparities of wealth this area symbolises rather disturbing, but I have to disagree with the writer who suggests this would be a bad place to live. If you do happen to have a lot of money (I don't), one of the massive houses down parts of the Kings Road would be fantastic to live in - huge inside, off-street parking at a lot of them, near the centre of town. Sorry, I'm just a bit jealous. I'll go now.
  • People who live in Chelsea are all MAD. I wouldn't live there if you could buy a 4 bed house for 30K because there is nowhere to park the car (yet the locals think that the most suitable vehicle to own is a huge american jeep) and it inhabited by snobby morons who have tons of money and yet are stupid enough to choose to live somewhere so awful. Why? I cannot understand what on earth would make anyone want to live there. The place has NO appealing features at all. If you are crazy enough to live in a crappy city that London is, then Greenwich, Blackheath, Richmond and Hampstead are all significantly nicer places than Chelsea which is not better than Hackney.
