Chelsea Physic Garden

Hero image for this day out

Tucked away beside the Thames, Chelsea Physic Garden is a celebration of the beauty and importance of plants.

Founded in 1673 it is one of London’s oldest botanic gardens and contains a unique living collection of around 5,000 different edible, useful, medicinal and historical plants within its sheltering walls. This hidden gem is also a peaceful green oasis – enjoy a relaxing stroll, savour lunch or afternoon tea at the award winning Tangerine Dream Café then browse the unique garden gifts in the Book & Gift shop.

The Garden also hosts a variety of special and seasonal events over the year. They are inspiring, educational and always fun, often highlighting new aspects of The Garden's history and collections.
