Future events

• Bushy Park's role in the First World War

29-31 March, 10am-4pm

Upper Lodge in Bushy Park played host to the King's Canadian Convalescent Hospital

Bushy Park and Hampton Court Gardens will be featured in a free exhibition describing, through images, living history and commemoration, the important role of the Royal Parks and Royal Hospital, Chelsea, during the First World War and the transition to peacetime afterwards.

To be held at Wren House, in the grounds of the Royal Hospital, the exhibition will run from 29-31 March inclusive, from 10am to 4pm.

From the World War One Battlefields and Into The Peace will trace events that took place in the Royal Parks and the Royal Hospital during the Great War; Bushy Park, for example, became well-known for cultivating food, and between 1915 and 1919 it hosted the King’s Canadian Convalescent Hospital in what we now know as Upper Lodge.

Entrance to the exhibition is free. Enter through Chelsea Gate, next to the National Army Museum, in Royal Hospital Road, London SW3 4SR.
