About Royal Hospital Chelsea

Built by Sir Christopher Wren 1682-1692, the Grade I-listed Royal Hospital Chelsea was intended by King Charles II to be a home for soldiers who were unfit for further duty because of injury or old age. Hundreds of years on and the 66 acres (27 hectares) site is still home to these Chelsea Pensioners or "The Men in Scarlet", who can be seen in their colourful jackets and triangular hats making their way down the Royal Hospital Road.
