Chelsea Physic Garden
An extraordinary space at the heart of the capital. 17th Century apothecaries established Chelsea Physic Garden, and their work is continued today in its living collection of around 5,000 plants that have changed the world. Tucked away beside the Thames in one of London’s smartest boroughs, the Chelsea Physic Garden is a retreat from the buzz of the city. Within its sheltered walls, rare and unusual plants flourish: walkthrough shaded avenues and admire the gardens of edible, herbal and medicinal plants, colourful floral displays from the Atlantic islands and woodland and wilderness areas. Don’t miss the historical collections in the 100-year-old glasshouses. The Physic Garden Café serves up breakfast and lunch using British produce that you can enjoy while admiring the gardens. The garden shop is a real treat for horticultural goodies and gifts. And a whole host of events runs all year, from workshops to family activities.
