Royal Hospital Chelsea SOLD OUT
Tour | Royal Hospital Chelsea
Monday 22 June 2015 - 13:30 until 15:30
Home to the famous Chelsea Pensioners, the Royal Hospital is the creation of Sir Christopher Wren. Our tour will be guided by a current Chelsea Pensioner who will no doubt provide fascinating insights into the lives of the Pensioners. This walking tour will include the magnificent Figure Court, at the heart of Wren’s original design and dominated by Grinling Gibbons’ gilded statue of Charles II. Figure Court is bordered by the magnificent State Apartments, the Chapel and the Great Hall, all of which are included in our tour.
As a listed building, unfortunately the Royal Hospital is not fully accessible; there are several flights of steps and no lift access.
This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
