Description and Information

The Worshipful Society of Apothecaries of London founded the garden in 1673 as a centre for its apprentices to study medicinal plants and their applications. Over time it has become one of the most important centres of botany and plant exchange in the world. Sitting on the Thames Embankment, and sheltered by high walls, Chelsea Physic Garden is one of the oldest and most respected botanic gardens in Europe.
