Ranelagh Gardens

The Ranelagh Gardens are so called because they occupy the site of Ranelagh House, built in 1688-89
by the first Earl of Ranelagh, Treasurer of Chelsea Hospital (1685-1702), immediately adjoining the Hospital; apparently designed and built by himself.

Ranelagh House was demolished in 1805 and served as football pitch for Fulham FC, who played home matches between 1886-8 when it was known as the Ranelagh Ground.

This large garden has many mature trees, plant beds and grass areas.
