Hire the Garden

Discover natural beauty and tranquillity in the iconic surroundings of London’s oldest botanic Garden.

A Living Museum

Founded in 1673, the Grade-I listed Chelsea Physic Garden offers an oasis of green in the heart of one of the world’s most stylish urban districts.

Escape the indoors and the grey din of the city, and hold your event within our four-acre grounds—a living exhibition of over 4,500 plant specimens, meticulously curated over 350 years.

From the continent’s oldest pond rockery to the tropical plants house in our Victorian Glasshouses; the kaleidoscopic Dicotyledon beds, fragrant Mediterranean herbs, and the intimate paths and peripheries enclosing our two professionally maintained lawns— the Garden provides a stunning location for any occasion, and has a character and history unique amongst any other venue in Central London.

Your venue, your vision

With our highly versatile dry-hire offering, you can make the Garden exclusively your own, tailoring your event to your own vision and budget with the bespoke services of our accredited event suppliers. These are a selected by the Garden each year for their established industry excellence, as well as for sharing our own commitment to sustainability.

Whether you picture a working lunch in our indoor Gallery space, filming & photography in the World Woodland, drinks & canapes on our lawn, or a grand dinner under a marquee, enquire with us today to find out what our space has to offer you.

How you help us

We are not just a venue, but an educational charity, with a mission to demonstrate the medicinal, economic and cultural importance of plants to the wellbeing of humankind.

Every event held contributes to that mission, raising funds towards school activities, the restoration of our facilities, our community and public programmes, volunteering and traineeships, and preserving our living collection for future generations.
