Chelsea Pensioners, staff & volunteers at the Royal Hospital joined nurses & carers from the Margaret Thatcher Infirmary to celebrate International Nurses' Day.

When Chelsea Pensioner Ernie Boyden noticed a small street called Bunhouse Place, behind the Pimlico Road, he decided to investigate.

Each year, April 23rd usually marks St George's Day, the Patron Saint of England who is celebrated for mythical tales of conquering a mighty dragon. This year, the date also marked National Asparagus Day, and the Royal Hospital Chelsea celebrated both events in a uniquely British way.

The Chelsea Pensioners are celebrating the 325th anniversary of the opening of their historic home, the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

The Royal Hospital Chelsea celebrates the Ceremony of the Christmas Cheese, an annual event organised by the Dairy Council.
