Chelsea Physic Garden

Chelsea Physic Garden Flowers DSC_6682

The Chelsea Physic (for healing) Garden ⇒ was established in 1673 and is the second oldest botanic garden in the UK after the Oxford University Botanic Garden ⇒. The garden has approximately 5,000 plants including those with exotic scents. It is a very peaceful and pleasant walled garden hidden away in west London. 

There are some free tours upon entry but there is an entry fee and charges for the workshops, courses and special tours. Please see the website link above.

The easiest approach is by the 170 bus (bound for Roehampton) from Victoria Station to Chelsea Physic Garden. On alighting, just outside the gardens educational center, walk back a short way along the bus route to Swan Walk and the main entrance is little way down that road.  Map of the Garden ⇐.

The garden is next to the the Royal Hospital Chelsea ⇒ (home of the Chelsea Pensioners).
