Yesterday, we were lucky enough to be invited to lunch at the Royal Hospital, Chelsea. As previously mentioned on this blog, Chelsea is the home to the Chelsea Pensioners and is where a good friend of ours lives. He also just happens to be the current head tour guide.
~ Lunch in the Great Hall ~
~ DS with a mini Chelsea Pensioner ~
~ Our friend in his beautiful allotment ~
~ Chapel in the new Infirmary ~
~ Sir Christopher Wren’s original Chapel ~
Our friend always says that he gets a lot out of knowing us, including honorary Grandad status, but we reckon we benefit enormously from knowing such an amazing man.

Wow! SO beautiful! Can't wait to visit there someday so that I can check out all of the amazing architecture that you have!
How lovely and what a brilliant Dahlia he is proudly showing!
What a fantastic building!
I hope you all had a good day. Your DN was just saying he should write to his Chelsea Pensioner!! I love the way they have made the new chapel in keeping with the rest of the of the building. xx
I do love the way he wore his red sweatshirt so he would look the part 🙂
Lovely to get to see the Chelsea Pensioners buildings. I love the photo of DS with the mini Chelsea Pensioner 🙂 and the Dahlia is quite a size! xx
