  • I had the pleasure of attending an awards event here, and what a wonderful place! Fully accessible for any disability with extremely helpful people on hand to make sure you get to where you're going. Stunning buildings, art, architecture and furnishings. We had a wonderful evening!
  • The Royal Chelsea Hospital has enormous history behind it, very famous and is the home to the Chelsea Pensioners who are veterans of the British Army which adds to the history of Chelsea and dates back to 1682. The 66-acre site is well worth a visit and is also the venue for the Chelsea Flower Show in May. It is a beautiful architectural legacy left to us by Charles ll and Sir Christopher Wren.
  • The RHS Chelsea Flower Show was on and a very worthwhile visit. Public transport including the tube is the only way to get there and back. It is expensive at the show but it is a very good day out. The weather was very hot but not humid. Unfortunately my heart condition limited my walk abouts but the availability of drinks and ice creams was good.
  • Lovely venue for listening to live music on a summer evening... magical, and a marvelous place to honor respect and look after ww2 veterans.
  • A fantastic place to visit with so much to see showcasing the 300 years the Hospital has been active.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
