We are delighted to announce a private tour for IIL members of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, home to the iconic Chelsea Pensioners!

The Royal Hospital Chelsea is a magnificent Grade I and II listed site, dating back over 300 years to the reign of King Charles II, whose vision for a home for veteran soldiers was brought to life by Sir Christopher Wren.

This magnificent building and its beautiful grounds backing onto the River Thames are not normally open to the public, but we have organised a private tour exclusively for our members, which will be led by your very own Chelsea Pensioner tour guide.

The tour will last around 90 minutes, followed by 30 minutes to visit the Museum and Gift Shop.

Why you should attend:

  • A unique opportunity to marvel at Sir Christopher Wren’s stunning buildings
  • Discover the history of this unique national institution
  • Learn about the Chelsea Pensioners and hear their captivating stories
  • Get to know other members in a relaxed and friendly environment
