Having been on site to install a managed WiFi solution in the long wards, we can vouch for the grandiose and breathtaking beauty of the building. Pretty much unchanged since Sir Christopher Wren designed them at the end of the 17th Century, the Long Wards - home to the Chelsea Pensioners - are getting a makeover.

The small wooden rooms - measuring 9 x 9ft - are being modernised and getting bigger. The distinctive wood panelling will remain, but residents will enjoy the luxury of en suite facilities and direct daylight.

The BBC link below allows you to take a tour of the old rooms - and see how they will look in future.
