Welcome to Chelsea Physic Garden
Tucked away beside the Thames, Chelsea Physic Garden is a celebration of the beauty and importance of plants. This walled Garden was founded in 1673 by the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries for its apprentices to study the medicinal qualities of plants and it became one of the most important centres of botany and plant exchange in the world. Today, as an independent charity the Garden relies on the support of visitors and Friends to help protect and nurture the Garden for future generations.
The Garden is currently open Monday-Friday, 9.30am – 4pm (or dusk if earlier). The shop and cafe are closed. For tickets and prices click here.
Snowdrop Days opening times: Saturday 31 January – Sunday 8 February, 10am – 4pm
