The Royal Alfred
Seafarers' Society


Life at Royal Alfred

The Royal Alfred was established as a charity in 1865 to help retired seafarers and their dependents and has since evolved to offer dedicated care to people living with dementia. In 2018, we welcomed the public and esteemed guests to our annual Open Day. Play the video to see what life is like inside our award-winning care home.

About us

We have been providing housing, residential and nursing care to former seafarers, their widows and dependants for more than 150 years. Our residential and nursing care home, Belvedere House, together with our sheltered flats, is situated within the idyllic grounds of the Weston Acres Estate, near Banstead, Surrey.


During the Covid pandemic we have been putting regular messages on our website to update you. As the situation is becoming more fluid our messages are going out of date very quickly, so we have decided that any new notifications will be sent to loved ones directly and won't be posted on this platform. If you are unsure of our current visiting protocols you can always call us on 01737 360106 or email
