Founded in 1673, by the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries, Chelsea Physic Garden became one of the most important centres of botany and plant exchange in the world. There will be a private tour around the gardens and after lunch a second private tour will commence at the nearby Royal Hospital. The home of the Chelsea Pensioners and the annual Chelsea Flower Show, the Royal Hospital was built during the reign of Charles II and was designed by Sir Christopher Wren.
This event has been organised by the Essex Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
