South Grounds, Royal Hospital Chelsea

Nestled within the beautiful woodland of The Royal Hospital Chelsea comes the launch of London’s most magnificent food and beverage festival. This year, London emerges at the forefront of the covid pandemic recovery. Opening the doors of some of the most sought after restaurants and bars the city has to offer. The doors of which were closed for far too long.

On July 30th & 31st we will come together to celebrate a city rich in history and culture, and lay witness to a melting pot of some of the greatest culinary and beverage concepts the world has to offer. ​

Our festival will host a vast array of restaurants and chefs, many of which are award winning, some of which are up and coming at rapid speeds. These restaurants will showcase their greatest dishes allowing guests to sample their delights. Further to this, we have sprawled the country to find the best independent food vendors, and artisan marketeers who are leading the way in their field.

We will have drinks from some recognisable brands, and some truly exciting newcomers to the market.

Brompton Cemetery Seed Sowing
Sowing wildflowers in memory of past Chelsea Pensioners

On 6 May, Chelsea Pensioners and members of the Royal Hospital’s grounds team joined representatives from the Royal Parks, the Royal Parks Guild and the Friends of Brompton Cemetery to sow a patch of wildflower seeds in Brompton Cemetery as part of the Battlefields and Butterflies initiative.

Chelsea Pensioner Centenarians
100 years old and still going strong

Recent research backs up the anecdote that Chelsea Pensioners not only live considerably longer than their peers outside (by over five years, on average), but that their lifetimes once they come to the Royal Hospital are extending, year on year. This strongly suggests that the care and community here contribute to greater longevity – as well as improving quality of life.
