We have made the difficult decision to close Chelsea Physic Garden. We are grateful for your understanding at this sad time, and we are sorry for the disappointment our decision causes to visitors, however,  we must put the health and safety of our members, visitors, staff and volunteers first.

We hope to be able to enjoy Chelsea Physic Garden again with you very soon.

Please note that due to the closure of the Garden all events scheduled for April have been cancelled.
