Royal Hospital Chelsea

Founded by King Charles in 1682 as a retreat for veterans of the army, The Royal Hospital Chelsea occupies a magnificent position alongside the River Thames.

Home to the widely recognised Chelsea Pensioners, it is little known that within the Royal Hospital grounds stands a memorial to those who fell at the Battle of Chillianwalla, a major battle in the Anglo Sikh Wars, and captured sikh cannon.

The spectacular launch of the Anglo Sikh Heritage Trail took place at the Royal Hospital Chelsea on 2nd July 2004.
