If you are an artist looking for inspiration in your artworks, then moving to Chelsea seems a laudable choice. Chelsea is also a good district of London to move to for art critics or any fan of the arts. It was in fact once considered the borough for artists. But for shopaholics, Chelsea is the place to be in London. In fact, it is the shopping Mecca of London and arguably the entirety of England.

Chelsea is located in Southwest London. It is part of the London borough of Kensington and Chelsea. South of Chelsea is the famous Thames River and its frontage runs from Chelsea Embankment up to the Chelsea Harbour.

Chelsea had a reputation of being considered the hub of painters, poets, writers, musicians, and radical thinkers. Oscar Wilde, J.R.R Tolkien, Agatha Christie are just example of its former residents. However, today it is the home of the English military establishment, film stars, and bankers.  

Most of Chelsea is owned by Earl Cadogan through his Cadogan Estates. It is important to take note that Lord Cadogan is the freeholder of Chelsea and he has no intention of selling his properties. Hence, moving to Chelsea normally involves renting instead of owning one's house. Nonetheless, Lord Cadogan is considered an effective property developer for he and his company brought all major fashion labels to Sloane Street. The same street is considered as London's premiere shopping destination for first class fashion and high-end jewelry. For this reason, Chelsea has once again attracted international attention as a top fashion spot.

So if you are a fan of the arts and addicted to shopping, Chelsea is the district to move to in London.
