Experience the most famous flower show in the United Kingdom as the annual RHS Chelsea Flower Show returns once again this year to the Royal Hospital in Chelsea. Held by the Royal Horticultural Society, the show will attract around 157,000 visitors from all over the world to its grounds across five days in May.
The show has become an important venue for watching emerging gardening trends, as each year some of the world's top designers compete for the coveted gold medal prize. Explore small inspirational gardens to beautiful vibrant horticultural displays, and expect to see traditional styles along with more contemporary design.
Bursting with colour and buzzing with life, this really is a spectacular feast for all the senses, as the grounds are transformed with plenty of exotic and unusual flora and fauna. Do not miss this wonderful event as numbers are limited by the capacity of the 11 acre grounds, so make sure to purchase your tickets in advance!
