The elegant Figure Court lies at the very heart of Wren's original design for the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

Bordered by the State Apartments, the Chapel and the Great Hall, the courtyard space is dominated by the inspiring gilded statue of Charles II, created by Grinling Gibbons and presented to the King in 1682.

Figure Court can be hired in conjunction with the Great Hall or the State Apartments.
