Interesting Independent Shops in Chelsea

Jan 4, 2018

Russian oligarchs, reality TV, and some of the best shopping in the capital. There’s plenty to draw you to the fashionable borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

Independent stores abound, so next time you’re out on a weekend shopping trip, swing by one of these independent shops in Chelsea:

Daylesford Organic Pimlico

Whether you’re a devotee or not, the organic movement is here to stay.

This upmarket farm shop and cafe is the capital of all things organic in the Chelsea borough.

Artisan bread, organic meat and veg, and fresh cheese all find their way to the shelves from Daylesford’s own farm.

You can pop into the cafe for a coffee, or jump into a Cookery School course to learn how it’s all done.

Baker & Spice

One of a quartet of openings around London, Baker & Spice is a fresh cakery serving some of the best bakes in town.

Pastries, bread, cookies and more are all made on a morning and sold through the day.

Not easy on the wallet, or the waistband, but when it tastes this good you can make allowances.

Rococo

Something of a Chelsea institution, Rococo is a chocolate-lovers dream.

First opened in 1983, this chic chocolatier has been a place of indulgence ever since. 

Rich chocs, artisan eggs and an array of other treats await.

Kabiri

Kabiri is one of the district’s leading designer jewellery stores. With years in the business and expert staff, this is the place you go when needing a gift for those special occasions.

Not as pricey as you’d think, you can still get quite a lot of bang for your buck at this super-stylish outlet.

Wild at Heart

For Wild at Heart, think Chelsea Flower Show in shop form. A delightfully luxurious florist, these guys produce beautiful arrangements perfect for any occasion.

If you’re planning the big day, they also style weddings and events, with highlights including stunning tree-sized bouquets.

Trotters

The place the Royals go to kit the kids out, so you can expect a modicum of respectability at Trotters.

Having opened near 30 years ago, this trendy tots store has spread its wings with a few more openings since then.

Trotters kids are in abundance in Chelsea, with the original store a leading light for the apparently vibrant London children’s fashion scene.

John Sandoe Books

Chelsea has changed a lot in recent years after an influx of new developments and new money.

One thing that has remained the same is John Sandoe Books. This independent has been introducing the world of literature to Chelsea residents for over half a century.

There’s something about old bookstores that is rather appealing and the brimming shelves of John Sandoe’s are no different.

Partridges

Established grocers Partridges is the place The Queen purchases her five a day (well, we assume she has an appointed Vegetable Connoisseur).

Here you’ll find some of the freshest and most expensive groceries in London, from organic fruits to fine wines.

Should you aspire to a Royal diet, a trip to Partridges is the first step to achieving that dream.
