The Chelsea Physic Garden is tucked very quietly within the neighbor and truly a gem to visit. The gardens were well curated with many paths to explore and well documented for those looking to learn. We loved the wooden glasshouses and the diversity throughout the...More

The garden was established in the 1600s to train doctors and apothecaries. It has sections for medicinal plants, for regions, for classification. The guided tours are well worth doing. The cafe was a bit pricey but good food, we really enjoyed our lunch.

We went on a free tour by a very knowledgeable volunteer. We were shown all the plants and their properties, some useful in medicine but some poisonous! The garden is staffed by helpful gardeners and the admissions man was so welcoming. We planned about 90...More

I spent the day here with friends. We had a delicious, though quite expensive, lunch in the "conservatory" then an individually-designed ice-cream. It is not a really big garden but it is well laid out with lots of interesting paths to follow taking you round...More

I found a description of this garden's historical significance in researching medicinal and toxic plants so we decided to come. There are hundreds of specimens growing here, and many of the descriptions describing medicinal values of some really interested my pharmacist wife. Very peaceful place...More

Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's
upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops,
eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at
its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely
unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this
showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price
