Burton Court

Burton Court is private property owned by the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

The Home of the Chelsea Pensioners is a Grade I listed Wren masterpiece that has constant multi-million pound refurbishment costs.  The Royal Hospital is not owned by the government and we are responsible for raising the money to meet this upkeep.

Demand for pass cards is high and the eco structure quite delicate, so we have to carefully balance the usage, and impose rules on pass holders which we have to insist are followed so that every one can enjoy the area.

At present, the comprehensive pass to Burton Court allows our members access to the following facilities:

  • Tennis
  • Personal Tennis Coaching
  • Children's Tennis Academy
  • General Walking
  • Dog Walking
  • Access to the cricket nets
