Royal Hospital Chelsea

In their striking scarlet uniforms the Chelsea Pensioners are the iconic faces of the UK’s veteran community. Some 300 army veterans live at the Royal Hospital today, their 325-year-old home in the heart of London.

The Royal Hospital is a Grade I listed site, a beautiful architectural legacy left to us by Charles II. You can discover the history behind this unique national institution by enjoying a guided walking tour of the Royal Hospital led by a resident Chelsea Pensioner. You will marvel at Sir Christopher Wren’s stunning buildings, hear the captivating stories of the inhabitants - both past and present – and learn about what life is like for today’s veterans at the Royal Hospital.

On the banks of the Thames, the Royal Hospital Chelsea, just a ten minute walk from the hotel, is also a unique venue offering a number of historic and beautiful spaces for spectacular private daytime and evening events.
