King's Road in Chelsea is one of the most happening places in London, and a must-visit for tourists looking for a diverse range of shops and boutiques. It is connected to the tube network by the stations Sloane Square to the east, and Fulham Broadway towards the west.

Following New Kings Road all the way to the Thames will also bring you to Putney Bridge Station.

Sloane Square and Chelsea

The nearest tube to King's Road is Sloane Square, a place synonymous with the best and latest in designer clothes and trendy fashions, as well as being only a stone's throw from the glitz of Knightsbridge - which houses London's most famous department stores: Harrods and Harvey Nichols.

King's road was originally a private road used by King Charles II as a means of travelling to Kew, and was not opened to the public until the early 19th century,

The street now serves as Chelsea's high street, and was known during the 60s and 70s as London's most fashionable and bohemian area (a title that arguably now sits with Shoreditch and Dalston).

Shopping on the Kings Road

The Kings Road area is home to several fine restaurants, but these serve mainly to refuel between shopping expeditions.

As far as shopping goes, the area has several upmarket antique shops and auction houses where 'one can poke around for something that matches one's tastes'.

If you're looking for high-street fashion, shops like Oasis, French Connection, Russell and Bromley, Coccinelle and Duke of York's Headquarters are worth checking out.

Steinberg and Tolkien are 'must-vists' if you're interested in vintage clothing, and the Peter Jones department store and various cafes complete the list of King's Road landmarks.
