Chelsea Physic Garden is open for the well-being of our community. We are happy to be able to provide a green space for our local community. For safety reasons, there is an hourly limit on the number of Friends and visitors allowed in the Garden. For this reason, we will only allow entry with a valid prebooked ticket for visitors, we also recommend that Friends reserve a free ticket. We are excited to say that from 17 May our historic glasshouses will be reopened to the public. Please read our Visitor Guidelines for more information on how to book your ticket and what to expect when you visit.
