Held in the grounds of the Royal Hospital in Chelsea, London and hosted by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) the Chelsea Flower show is possibly the most famous flower and garden design show in the world. Only the very best in gardening have the opportunity to display their works and compete for the prestigious awards, making it a spectacular event for those attending.
The show runs for five days, during which it is attended by Queen Elizabeth II and other famous faces, attracting visitors from around the world. There are a range of garden designs, from classic flower beds to avant-garde or themed displays. For the keen amateur gardener, it is an amazing place to learn and be inspired, whilst for those who enjoy a walk in the park you won’t be disappointed with the sheer volume and diversity on display.
