About the Chelsea Physic Garden

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 in London.

IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
