Chelsea Physic Garden


London's oldest botanic garden, particularly linked with medicinal plants through its foundation by the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries in 1673. The four acre green oasis has one of the oldest rock gardens in Europe, a Victorian Cool Fernery, beds of medicinal plants, botanical order beds, glasshouses, rare plants and tender species, plus the largest olive tree outdoors in Britain.

Free guided tours and audio guides available. A delightful green haven alongside the Thames for a leisurely visit, with a renowned cafe and gift shop.

New for 2015 - World Woodland Garden, celebrating forest environments from around the world and the medicinal and useful plants that they produce.
