The Royal Hospital Chelsea
Wednesday 26 February 2020

VISIT  TO  ROYAL  HOSPITAL  CHELSEA
Wednesday 26th February

Sitting on the banks of the River Thames is one of Sir Christopher Wren's masterpieces, The Royal Hospital Chelsea.  Founded in 1682 by Charles II this historic building has been providing a home for army veterans ever since.  Discover more about the history behind this unique national institution by coming with TAS Marlow on a guided walking tour of the Royal Hospital led by a resident Chelsea Pensioner.  We will explore the famous Wren Chapel and Great Hall. Gain an insight into 17th century life and hear first hand what life is like for the iconic Chelsea Pensioners.
We plan to arrive in time for you to buy something to eat in the very reasonably priced coffee shop before the tour starts, and we should leave at about 16.30.
Price:  £25.00 per per person.      
Bookings taken at December and January lectures
