Teachers' Open evenings in 2019:

We will be holding 2 of these this year -

Both will be a chance for you to visit Chelsea Physic Garden and see what we have on offer for schools, colleges and home-schooled groups. Our Education team will be here to answer any questions and take you on a tour of this wonderful outdoor educational resource.

You’ll have the chance to learn some new skills around the subject of plants, history, art and science. Wine, soft drinks and nibbles will be available. Entry is free, but booking is essential.
