Chelsea Flower Show - Flowers in Bloom

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is a spectacular annual event which brings together the world’s best landscapers, florists and nurseries. Held in the ground of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, this event attracts more than 150,000 visitors including members of the Royal Family. The Chelsea Flower Show is renowned for being the world’s most famous flower show and this year it’s taking place on the 21-25th May.

Things to Do

One of the main highlights of the show is the world-class garden designs that are on display. Budding gardeners can find inspiration amongst the cutting-edge designs and discover new trends to try in their own gardens. Some of the most imaginative displays are created by world-class designers who push the boundaries in order to win the coveted Best Show Garden Award. Alongside these big names and showing off their green fingers is the Duchess of Cambridge who has co-designed one of the incredible displays!

While the show gardens are the main highlight, there are plenty of other things to do at the Chelsea Flower Show. Chelsea’s Great Pavilion is bursting with award-winning nurseries and growers from all over the world. You’ll be able to fall in love with a new bloom and purchase rare and exciting flowers and plants to put in your own garden. The experts will also be on hand to give you their top gardening tips.

Even though this is the most prestigious flower show in the world, it’s not all about flowers and plants. You have the unmissable opportunity to discover delicious artisan dishes designed exclusively by acclaimed chef, Raymond Blanc. Enjoy fantastic food, exciting cocktails and beautiful gardens at Jardin Blanc, a dining experience like no other!

Getting To the Show

Parking in Chelsea can be a nightmare and getting the train to an event that has over 150,000 visitors is equally just as bad.
