Chelsea Physic Garden

Located not far from the bustle of the famous shopping street of Kings Road, Chelsea Physic Garden is London’s oldest botanic garden, a beautiful four-acre piece of living history. Founded in 1673 to train apothecaries in the healing arts, the Garden provides the perfect backdrop for any event. Over the centuries the Garden has become a showcase for plants brought back by great plant hunters like Sir Joseph Banks and Robert Fortune, making its beds a living history. Chelsea Physic Garden is England’s second oldest botanic garden and is ideal in creating an oasis for your guests from urban life while still being located in the heart of London. From intimate events in the open Garden, to special occasions held in the Marquee, Chelsea Physic Garden can accommodate up to 500 standing for a reception or up to 325 seated in the midst of its lush greenery.

An added bonus to holding your event here is the fact that your event helps support the Garden and preserves it for future generations while continuing to educate thousands of school children about the vital role plants play in all our lives.
