With the COVID-19 virus continuing to spread around the country and, in particular, in London, we have taken the necessary steps to safeguard the Chelsea Pensioners and staff at the Royal Hospital Chelsea. As such the museum is now closed and the main Royal Hospital Chelsea site will now be closed to external visitors until further notice.
