Royal Hospital Chelsea History

Over 300 years ago, Sir Christopher Wren had the vision to provide veteran soldiers with a home during King Charles II’s reign. Before the 17th century, it was solely the responsibility of religious groups to ensure that old and injured soldiers received the care they needed, as the state made little effort to do so. The destruction of the monasteries put an end to these provisions during the reign of King Henry VIII. King Charles II obtained a Royal Warrant in 1681 to commence construction, providing a home for those who were “broken by the age of battle.”

When Sir Christopher Wren had the commission to begin working on the hospital, he chose a location adjacent to the River Thames in the countryside of Chelsea and began building. After construction was finished in 1692, 476 veterans could retire there peacefully. The Royal Hospital Chelsea was inspired by King Charles II’s understanding that the country owes a debt of gratitude to its past troops.

The annual Chelsea Flower Show is one of the most famous and renowned events in the UK. Not only that, but it is perhaps the most famous flower and garden show in the world. Annually, the event attracts over 160,000 visitors to view the stunning gardens on display.
