Parks & Recreation
Burton Court is a popular green space - visitors do need apply for membership, but once approved it is an idyllic open green space to visit, with tennis courts moments from the Kings Chelsea. it is also possible to hire for private functions such as hosting cricket matches and summer evening soirées. Chelsea is wedged between some of London’s most iconic parks: just north is Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, and south of river there is Battersea Park, which is well known for its outdoor sports facilities, zoo and annual fireworks event. A small unknown public space to even most locals is Royal Hospital and Ranelagh Gardens within the grounds of the Royal Hospital - ideal for picnics, strolls and relaxing outdoors.
The Chelsea Physic Garden, established in 1673 is a hidden London gem and London’s oldest botanical garden. Over its long history, the Garden has been at the heart of ground-breaking research which has not only furthered our understanding of plants and herbal medicines, but has also contributed to life-saving treatments for diseases such as malaria. As a proud partner of the garden, Chestertons has created a beautiful brochure on the history of the garden; you can see this here.
