Visit & Lunch - Royal Hospital Chelsea
Wednesday 9 July 2014
Dress: Suit / Jacket & Tie

The Royal Hospital, built by Sir Christopher Wren, was founded in 1682 by Charles II as a retirement home and a nursing home for soldiers unfit for duty by age or injury. It is currently the home for approximately 300 Chelsea Pensioners. Assemble between 9.00 and 9.30am for coffee and croissants in the State Apartments, then enjoy a guided tour of the Royal Hospital, including the chapel where Lady Thatcher regularly worshipped, the Great Hall, and the Figure Court with the statue of Charles II in the middle of it. We are very privileged to have a pre-lunch drink in the Chelsea Pensioners Club, in the company of a number of In-Pensioners, before enjoying a 2-course buffet lunch with wine.
