Thereare many things that symbolise the UK in modern culture and you only need to look around and it becomes clear that trends can impact many elements of culture. Take for example Chelsea. This is a stunning part of the country that can easily be identified with the Chelsea flower show.

The Chelsea Flower Show is an event that boasts the best of British horticulture and is an event that is graced by television personalities and celebrities alike. The show which is held each year in May is situated in the grounds of the Royal Hospital in Chelsea. It runs for 5 days and is perhaps consider the most famous garden event in the world. The first Royal Horticultural Society Great Spring Show was held in 1862 and was held in the RHS garden in Kensington. The show is attended by 157,000 visitors each year; this is limited to a maximum capacity. The show is extensively covered by the BBC each year and provides highlights and further information on the BBC website.

Chelsea of course is also famous for its substantially successful football club. The club has had its ups and downs over the years, much like any other club, but they have most of their time in the top tier of professional football. They have won the Premier League, The League Cup and also the Champions League. The team can traditionally be seen sporting the Royal Blue football strip as this reflects their clubs colours. To see Chelsea play at the home venue a trip to Stamford Bridge will be required. The ground was officially opened in 1877 and for the first 28 years was primarily used by the London Athletics club as a venue for meetings.  The club has also released a song called ‘Blue is the Colour’ and was released in 1972 in the build up to the start of the League Cup Final which featured all of Chelsea’s first team squad singing. The single peaked at number 5 in the UK singles chart.

This highlights just two things that the area of Chelsea is recognised for. If you want to see what else is on offer in the area or want to explore further then why not rent property in Chelsea and experience first hand what this cultural part of Britain has to offer?
