London is a great place to visit all year round, however, if there is one time of year that it is particularly magical, it is during Christmas and the New Year. Not only are there an assortment of events on, but the entire city becomes a twinkling sea of lights too.
There are plenty of places in London that you can plan to visit whilst you are in the city. One of which is Chelsea. But what can you actually do in Chelsea whilst you are here? Let’s take a look at some of the top things to see and do.
Bluebird Café Chelsea
Who doesn’t love the idea of spending some time in a cosy and welcoming café? Especially during the winter? This is definitely something that you wouldn’t think that you would see in Chelsea, however, with the Bluebird Café you can find just that. Dubbed as a café on a grand scale, there is nothing second class about this amazing eaterie. Not only does it serve a variety of amazing and top-quality food but during the festive months the courtyard is transformed into a white wonderland, Narnia if you like, complete with heated lodges that you can while away a few hours in.
Cambio de Tercio Restaurant
Found on Old Brompton Road, Cambio de Tercio is one of those places that you go to when you are looking to experience something truly special and remarkable. It offers up some of the finest food in the area, with flavour combinations and presentation that is definitely going to leave you feeling utterly impressed. Ideal for a festive treat, we highly recommend getting yourself booked in for this particular restaurant as it can be busy with eager diners looking to explore everything that has to offer.
Eclipse Cocktail Bars
Sometimes all you need to do really enjoy some time in Chelsea during Christmas and the New Year is to sit and relax in a bar, chatting and catching up with someone special. A really great bar located on Old Brompton Road is Eclipse. Old Brompton Road is known for being home to a number of Shops and boutiques, however, it is also a great place to enjoy some social time. The Eclipse cocktail bar has a distinctly intimate feel. Eclipse isn’t all about the style, of course, it is also a place to try some amazing cocktails, as well as indulge yourself in some delicious food too. A really great way to spend some time.
Shopping on Fulham and Kings Road
One of the best things about the holiday season is that you have plenty of excuses to treat yourself and those around you. Which means that you are going to need to get some shopping time in. Thankfully, Chelsea has plenty of amazing places that you can head to if you want to get some shopping done. Not only are there a number of high street names out there, especially in the Fulham Road and Kings Road, but there are also a variety of boutiques and smaller name stores that you can visit for something that is a little bit different. There are also a number of designer stores too, all of which have something a little special to offer you when you are on a shopping spree.
If you are feeling peckish and you are not sure where to go, then one great place to head is Hollywood Road, Hollywood Road is absolutely packed full of amazing places to eat, with a restaurant to suit every single taste and cuisine preference. There are places that suit those on a budget, as well as places that are probably more for a special occasion. It really does depend on who you want to spend some time with and how much of a budget you have set aside.
Of course, all of these things are great fun, but what if you fancy giving yourself a bit of a treat during your time in Chelsea? Aer Blowdry Bar is the place to come. Based in the area we are easy to get to. Not only this but we also offer a wide range of beauty treatments and many blow dry options for your hair. All of which will make sure you feel festively fabulous whilst you are in Chelsea.
Then, it is down to you where you take your amazing hair, you could spend it dancing the night away, eating at an amazing restaurant or perhaps simply sitting and catching up with someone special.
Whatever it is that you want to do, one thing is for sure, you will never be short of things to do in Chelsea.
