  • Lovely place to visit, particularly on special occasions, when the old soldiers wear their red. Very good café on-site. There are lovely grounds to walk round and the church is stunning. Very impressive. All the way round the grounds are lots of things to see, including sculptures made by the old soldiers themselves. Really nice that these ex servicemen and women are so well looked after.

  • What a remarkable 'retirement establishment' - very smart old soldiers enjoying the fruits of their long & distinguished careers - taken around by a very knowledgeable NCO with a well developed sense of humour - an interesting & enjoyable visit - highly recommended.

  • What can I say, it's the Royal Hospital Chelsea, home of the world famous Chelsea Pensioner. It's a stunning establisment that oozes history.

  • I had the pleasure of attending an awards event here, and what a wonderful place! Fully accessible for any disability with extremely helpful people on hand to make sure you get to where you're going. Stunning buildings, art, architecture and furnishings. We had a wonderful evening!

  • The Royal Chelsea Hospital has enormous history behind it, very famous and is the home to the Chelsea Pensioners who are veterans of the British Army which adds to the history of Chelsea and dates back to 1682. The 66-acre site is well worth a visit and is also the venue for the Chelsea Flower Show in May. It is a beautiful architectural legacy left to us by Charles ll and Sir Christopher Wren.
