Hipmunk's most popular hotels in Chelsea
Built on rubble excavated from the Royal Docks, Battersea Park faces the Royal Borough of Chelsea and offers fine urban views from its perimeter pathways. Look across the water east to Chelsea Bridge, and scan westwards down the red-brick Embankment to Chelsea Old Church, where Thomas More prayed. Henry James lived on Cheyne Walk, while Oscar Wilde lived on nearby Tite Street until his 1885 arrest at the Cadogan Hotel for "gross indecency." The area is still home to artists studios, clubs and Heatherleys School of Fine Art. Enjoy Sunday lunch in a local gastropub, and stop and smell the roses at flower-filled Chelsea Physic Gardens.

Historic yet hip as you please, London trades tabloid gossip during intermission at West End theater premieres, works up a fierce appetite for East End curry at Tate Modern art shows, and crooks its pinky over high tea at Claridge's before trying on Central Saint Martins' latest punk-chic for London Fashion Week.
