Chelsea Physic Garden

Parks and Open Spaces

Location

South of Kensington Gardens, right on the edge of the Thames.

About

The aim of the physic garden (with the word 'physic' used to denote the power and science of the healing process in this instance) is, primarily, to educate those interested in the medical uses behind the plants and flowers that are grown here. It has other uses too; it's not just a place to come and be bombarded with barrages of confusing information. Visitors are welcome purely to relax and be becalmed by the gentleness, peace and serenity of the whole complex.

Things to do

Horticulturalists and gardening enthusiasts have the opportunity to have their knowledge and skills enriched by a visit to the Chelsea Physic Garden. The staff hold different courses and classes, such as beekeeping 101 and honey tasting. Generally, you'll learn how to tend for various types of flower and discover which methods/climes/environments are best for certain plants. As well as this, the Physic Garden has several rare and exotic species of flower growing within its grounds, thanks to the suitable 'microclimate' for which the complex was built so close to the Thames, which can be observed and marveled at.
