Royal Hospital Chelsea

The Royal Hospital Chelsea is a retirement home for veterans of the British army, located in Chelsea in southwest London. The hospital was founded by Charles II and opened in 1692. The residents are referred to as “Chelsea Pensioners” and often wear distinctive uniforms. Prominent architects were involved in the design and construction of the buildings. The chapel was designed by Christopher Wren, and John Soane designed a new infirmary building for the hospital in the nineteenth century.
