We have a wonderful visit. The gardens are really inspirational and hugely interesting. Established in 1600’s so amazing to think of the plants being brought here over the years. Really well kept garden. We had supper on the main lawn. It was very British.... absolutely...More

This beautiful, walled garden in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of London is a balm for the soul. To reach it easily, go to Victoria Station and then take the 170 bus to the garden. So many plants and so much information....More

Very interesting visit to the garden! We had a tour by a volunteer who was very knowledgeable about medicinal and toxic plants. I have read extensively about the topic so it was informative to see the plants in person. Even though it is the dryest...More

On a lovely London evening, sun setting in a clear blue sky, we enjoyed the marvellous wealth of plants and sculpture in this oasis of calm - central London felt miles away. During July and August, after 6pm the entry fee is halved, making it...More

An oasis of calm in such a busy city. I’ve wanted to visit this garden since coming across it by chance after visiting the Chelsea Flower show last year. You enter via a small entrance of a side street that gives no hint of the...More

This place rates as my absolutely favourite in the world. Not only it is the second oldest botanical garden in England, a repository of amazing plant species collected over the centuries by explorers and naturalists, but it is also a place where us, mere mortals...More

This is a lovely little garden in the heart of Chelsea, and anyone with an interest in medicinal plants or herbal remedies would find it fascinating. The garden is divided into sections with plenty of information about the history of the garden, the plant hunters...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
