Chelsea Physic Garden Open Day
Hidden in the heart of London, Chelsea Physic Garden is a peaceful oasis and centre for learning.
Founded by the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries of London in 1673 for apprentices to study the medicinal qualities of plants, by the 18th century it was one of the world's most important centres of botany and plant exchange.
Highlights include Europe’s oldest rockery, the Garden of Medicinal Plants, and the World Woodland Garden, as well as a beautiful collection of glasshouses containing plants from around the world. Over time, the Garden has evolved, but it remains a place that cultivates plants and ideas.
Free tours of the garden will run throughout the day, leaving from the Sir Hans Sloane Statue.
