Chelsea and Fulham, two neighboring areas in southwest London, have rich and distinct histories. Chelsea's history can be traced back to the Anglo-Saxon era, and it was documented as a village in the Domesday Book of 1086. It gradually became a fashionable area for the British aristocracy and was known for its bohemian atmosphere, especially during the Victorian era. Fulham, on the other hand, has been inhabited since at least the Roman occupation of Britain. It was historically a working-class area with a significant industrial presence along the River Thames, contrasting with the more affluent Chelsea.

As London expanded, both Chelsea and Fulham underwent significant transformations. During the 18th and 19th centuries, Chelsea began to lose its rural aspect, becoming more residential and commercial, with the establishment of numerous shops, theaters, and eateries. The Royal Hospital Chelsea, founded by King Charles II in 1682, became a notable landmark. Fulham also evolved during this period, with its industrial sector flourishing.

In the 20th and early 21st centuries, both areas continued to evolve. Chelsea became synonymous with the "Swinging London" of the 1960s, being a hub for fashion, music, and culture. The King's Road in Chelsea became famous for its trendy shops and boutiques. Fulham, while still retaining some of its industrial roots, saw an increase in residential development and became known for its attractive housing, parks, and cultural venues like the Fulham Palace.
