During this interactive day, we will bring to life Chelsea Physic Garden via the stories behind 10 carefully chosen ‘objects’. These will include herbarium specimens, books, artefacts, and more. The day will be presented by Garden Historian, Letta Jones.

Since 1673 Chelsea Physic Garden has occupied four acres of land on the edge of the Thames. First established by the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries in order to grow medicinal plants, this extraordinary garden in London has had wide-reaching impact around the world.
