Schools

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 all school visits and bookings for March & April have been cancelled. The main Royal Hospital Chelsea site will now also be closed to external visitors until further notice.

Free school visits available

The Royal Hospital Chelsea is currently engaged in building a suite of cross-curricular learning activities with strong links to the National Curriculum in England. 

Join us for one of our tailor-made learning sessions or events to learn about over 300 years of history and the role that Royal Hospital Chelsea has played in British society.

Unable to visit? Why not let the Chelsea Pensioners come to you? We offer outreach to local London schools and institutions. Take part in a themed workshop or book a talk with a Chelsea Pensioner.
