Nestled within historic walls in the heart of Chelsea, the Garden offers a green, tranquil location that you and your guests will never forget. Steeped in history, London’s oldest botanic garden is a beautiful and memorable venue for your special city wedding.
Chelsea Physic Garden provides the perfect backdrop for your big day, with outdoor and indoor space, beautiful planting, small paths, and big trees, all possible to explore throughout the day.
The venue is ‘dry hire’ so you can choose from a wide range of fabulous, trusted accredited suppliers. The Garden’s team will provide you with all the information and tips you need to transform your dreams into a reality.
Licensed for weddings indoors with celebrations in the Garden, you decide what is best for you.
Outside are two lawns, perfect for marquees, and the rest of Garden is open for guests to explore the winding paths and collection of over 4,500 plants. Inside, the Gallery space upstairs overlooks the Garden.
The entire site is available to hire exclusively, and areas can also be booked separately.
The Garden and Lawn
The Garden spreads over four acres, and is filled with the sound of birds, bees, and other wildlife. With areas of woodland, palm trees, planted borders, a pond, and two manicured lawns, you and your guests will be able to wander the paths and enjoy a rare moment of calm in the central London.
At the north end of the site is the Main Lawn, an idyllic space well-suited to weddings. This lawn provides the perfect area for the wedding ceremony and for guests to mingle afterwards, surrounded by a wide variety of plants and flowers.
Tucked away in the southwest corner, the secluded Lower Lawn is ideal for small, day-time gatherings of up to 100 guests, or as an extension of an event on the Main Lawn.
This indoor room is on the upper floor of main building, which lines one side of the Lawn and overlooks the Garden. The room is well-lit, airy, and spacious. The Gallery comes with access to 80 chairs, 12 tables and use of the projector, laptop and our AV system.
