Life as a Chelsea Pensioner
I think we’re doing well here, compared to the outside world. The staff are doing everything they can in the circumstances.Chelsea Pensioner Ray Pearson
In accordance with Government and Public Health England advice, only the most essential public access to the Royal Hospital is permitted. All scheduled on-site events and activities have been cancelled or postponed until we are confident that there is no longer a risk to the Chelsea Pensioners. Safeguarding our resident community is our paramount concern.
