Westminster University

With Covid-19 impacting on our ability to visit historic gardens in person, we have partnered with Westminster University to explore ways to bring the Chelsea Physic Garden to people at home. Together we have created an inclusive video tour which introduces you to the delights that this unique heritage site has to offer. By taking part in the study, you will provide invaluable feedback to help Westminster University and the Chelsea Physic Garden.
