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 (subject to availability)

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.

Infirmary Bombing
Remembering the Soane Infirmary bombing

Today marks 80 years following the bombing of the Royal Hospital’s Infirmary during the Second World War. The magnificent Infirmary, which once stood on the current site of the National Army Museum, was hit by a parachute bomb on 16 April 1941 – destroying most of the building and tragically ending the lives of 13 people.
