Since the COVID-19 virus began to spread around the country back in February 2020, we have taken the necessary steps to safeguard the Chelsea Pensioners and staff at the Royal Hospital Chelsea and close all on site facilities to external visitors. Most of the main site remains closed to visitors during 2022 until further notice.
The Royal Hospital Chelsea is easily accessible by road and by public transport.
