Chelsea Physic Garden
Travelers with green thumbs can take advantage of full-day tours to check off several of the capital’s hidden gardens or benefit from inclusive deals such as the London Pass to combine a visit with other top attractions. Enjoy respite from the bustling city on a stroll through the family-friendly grounds, or take advantage of the garden’s year-round program of walks, talks, and workshops for first-hand insight into London’s green scene.
Things to Know Before You Go
The Chelsea Physic Garden is a must-do for nature lovers, gardeners, or anyone looking for some peace and quiet in the city.
Remember a coat and umbrella during the rainy months, as the garden is mostly unsheltered—though you can always dive into the on-site café.
Wheelchair access to the garden is available, but it’s worth calling ahead to discuss specific access requirements.
How to Get There
Sloane Square is the nearest underground station, while the 170 bus stops directly outside. Limited on-street parking is available nearby at a cost, though be aware of the nearby Congestion Charging zones on weekdays.
When to Get There
Though the blooms of late spring and summer draw most visitors, the atmospheric vistas and festive workshops of autumn and winter have their own charms. Seasonal opening hours apply, so check ahead.
Though often associated with industrial smog and concrete high-rises, Greater London is actually 47 percent green space. Head to nearby Battersea Park or Hyde Park to freely explore green London at your own pace, or take advantage of deals that include access to the London Wetland Centre or Kew Gardens for further insight into environmental sustainability in the city.
