Royal Hospital Chelsea

Another of Christopher Wren’s beautiful architecture, the Royal Hospital Chelsea was built between 1682 and 1692. It has remained the home of the iconic Chelsea Pensioners ever since, now occupied by those who served in the British armed forces during WWII and other conflicts around the world.

Inside the building, the architecture of the Great Hall, Chapel and State Apartments are noted for their grand design, and, of course, the beautiful gardens play host to the Chelsea Flower Show every year. The museum charts the history of the building and the Chelsea Pensioners residency, with medals, uniforms and memorabilia all out on display.
