Burton Court is private property owned by the Royal Hospital Chelsea, which is used to generate funds for the running costs and maintenance of the Royal Hospital.

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

  • Tennis
  • Personal Tennis Coaching
  • General Walking
  • Dog Walking
  • Access to the cricket nets

Demand for access cards is high and the eco structure is quite delicate, so we have to carefully balance the usage and impose rules that we insist are followed so that all members can enjoy the area.

Dog owners are reminded that dogs must be supervised and kept under control at all times.

As Burton Court is a confined space, dog supervision is paramount to ensure that incidents between dogs do not occur.

Members seen to not adequately supervise or keep their dog under control will be asked to put them on the lead.


The cost of the pass is £795 (including VAT) and will last for one year from the date of issue of your access card.
