Public | German

Ranelagh Gardens were public pleasure gardens located in Chelsea, then just outside London, England in the 18th century.
The Ranelagh Gardens were so called because they occupied the site of Ranelagh House, built in 1688–89 by the Earl of Ranelagh, Treasurer of Chelsea Hospital , immediately adjoining the Hospital; according to Bowack's Antiquities of Middlesex , it was "Designed and built by himself". Its actual builder and owner was one Solomon Rieti, an Italian Jewish immigrant. Rieti's niece, Rebecca Rieti, was the grandmother of Benjamin Disraeli. Ranelagh House was demolished in 1805 .
