The Royal Hospital is a unique blend of national heritage, royal patronage and
military tradition, forged over 330 years, whose exemplar model of care and
wellbeing for ordinary soldiers remains as central to its purpose as when first
conceived, and whose influence on the history of Chelsea is profound.
Join the Chelsea Pensioner led tour for a warm and welcoming visit to the Royal
Hospital Chelsea. The tour tells the story of the 330-year history of the Hospital,
taking in the splendour of the Grade I and II listed buildings, inclusive of artistic
masterpieces. The tour will bring to life the long-standing ambassadorial role of the
Chelsea Pensioners, inclusive of anecdotal personal stories of their time at the
Hospital.

As part of London Unseen, this event will be free to attend thanks to funding from the Mayor of London's
Commission for Diversity in the Public Realm.
