During our April visit to London, we had a wonderful afternoon at the Chelsea Physic Garden. A good friend, who now lives in London, shared this wonderful place with us. Until we arrived, I had no idea where we were even heading, as it was...More

I found a description of this garden's historical significance in researching medicinal and toxic plants so we decided to come. There are hundreds of specimens growing here, and many of the descriptions describing medicinal values of some really interested my pharmacist wife. Very peaceful place...More

Picture in your mind a cheesecake (a very nice one I must admit) with enough remaining on the plate for 3 people. I was with 2 others so we decided all to have cheesecake which meant it had to be divided into 3. The first...More

The gardens are lovely. There are many interesting plants, well labelled: a surprising amount crammed into the space. The cafe was bizarre: as first time visitors we were uncertain how it operated - was there a queue for tables, were you expected to grab one...More

I'd always wanted to visit here, since finding it on Tripadvisor a while ago. On a lovely summers day i dragged the wife and little one along to see what it was like. It's the sort of place you could drive right past and not...More

We visited the gardens as one of our 'just for fun' outings. It is huge, spreading over four acres of land backing onto the banks of the Thames beyond the embankment. It was started by the Apothecaries in 1673 in order to grow medicinal plants....More

Small garden but with an amazing amount to see. Beautifully laid out, many different plants, well labelled and imaginatively arranged, with lots of information. Admission included a guided tour which was very interesting, including history of garden and background to current planting. Lots of pleasant...More

For such a compact garden there is a surprising amount to admire here. Being a Monday visit, there was no access to the shop or café, and some garden maintenance was going on to take advantage of a quiet day. We explored the cactus garden,...More

Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's
upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops,
eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at
its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely
unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this
showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price
tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down
pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal
