Figure Court

The elegant Figure Court lies at the very heart of Wren's original design for the Royal Hospital. Bordered by the State Apartments, the Chapel and the Great Hall, the courtyard space is dominated by the imposing gilded statue of Charles II, created by Grinling Gibbons and presented to the King in 1682. With an incredible view of South Terrace and the South Grounds of the Hospital all the way down to embankment, a reception in Figure Court certainly gives the wow factor.

Capacity for drinks: 400
Figure Court is included in the hire of the Great Hall or State Apartments.

“When we’re out of lockdown, I’ll be ready!”

The pandemic has meant it’s been a very difficult year for us all. The Chelsea Pensioners are no exception and have missed getting out and about. Nevertheless, they’ve put a brave face on it and, as one Chelsea Pensioner puts it, “the banter continues”.
