Do something different on your next family day out and experience an amazing piece of history with a visit to Royal Hospital Chelsea. This little-known London gem is home to Britain's hero veterans, the Chelsea Pensioners. The beautiful grounds are open to the public, so you can go in, take a stroll and explore.

Take the chance to learn about the past of Royal Hospital Chelsea at the on-site Museum. Check out the large diorama in the centre of the entrance hall to find out what the Royal Hospital looked like in 1742, and marvel at the 1998 Andrew Festing painting of Queen Elizabeth II. Want to know more? Take one of the paid pensioner led tours and hear stories from the residents.

Don’t miss the chance to spend some time in the gardens - they are absolutely stunning! You can also visit the chapel, or even attend one of the services. Speaking of attending events, Royal Hospital Chelsea organises many family-friendly events throughout the year, so make sure to keep an eye on their schedule.
