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 Post Office, Gift Shop and the main Royal Hospital Chelsea site will now be closed to external visitors until further notice.

Visit our shop for a wonderful selection of gifts and souvenirs to remember the Chelsea Pensioners and the Royal Hospital.

All profits from sales go to the Chelsea Pensioners’ Appeal (charity no: 1076414), so you know your gift will help care for the Nation’s veterans.

To shop online Visit our online shop.

Within the shop there is also a small Community Post Office providing general postal services
