A beautiful autumn day in London, so we decided to visit, even though we knew that this is not the best time. Still very enjoyable and educational. We had lunch as well. The food was good, but the service was rather chaotic to say the...More

This is a peaceful haven to visit during a sometimes hectic schedule in London. It is only 4 acres, so is very easy to get around. It's centuries old and has thousands of plants - medicinal, edible, useful and beautiful. I went by tube to...More

Went there to relax on a weekend day. Lots of plants and flowers, quiet and relaxing. At first I thought the entrance price is a little too much but considering how many species are there is quite a lot of hard work for the staff.

A friend recommended this place to me, so having seen so many sights in London already on different trips, we decided to give it a go. Easy to reach by tube and simply walking the remainder of the way; it was a beautiful walk. The...More

The Chelsea Physic Garden has been in operation for 350 years--more, if you consider it was a market garden before it was formalized. It's fairly small--I estimate it covers around 1/3 acre, but displays more than 5,000 plant species, many of them tropical. They can...More

I happen to live within walking distance of this garden and learn something new and interesting on each visit. this Sunday, our tour was focused on medicinal plants. The guides are always knowledgeable. Especially great for kids.

The garden is in between seasons at the moment so there is only a limited amount of colour however it is still worth a look. If it's your first time take a guided tour.

The Chelsea Physic Garden is a find for those who love gardens. It's more extensive than the exterior suggests. I particularly enjoyed the apothecary aspect, since parts of the garden provide descriptions of medicinal uses for the plants. It's a good way to spend a...More

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
