At the Poppy Factory you will enjoy a fascinating presentation and introductory film about the Factory and its history and then visit the 'shop floor', giving you the opportunity to meet some of the Poppy Factory's colleagues and see how poppies and wreaths are made.   A selection of souvenirs including the Poppy Factory china is available to purchase at the shop at the end of your tour.

 

The Royal Hospital, Chelsea, all tours are taken by one of our Chelsea Pensioner Tour Guides and last approximately 2 hours.  Our Pensioner Tour Guide will meet us at the Chelsea Gate and then will conduct the tour when you will gain a fascinating insight about the Hospital.  Few British institutions can boast three centuries of unbroken service, and none is closer to the heart of the nation than 'The Men in Scarlet', the Chelsea Pensioners. Their home, the Royal Hospital Chelsea, was founded in 1682 by King Charles II to provide soldiers with a fitting home in their retirement.
