The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is a world-famous horticultural show that takes place annually in Chelsea, London, in the UK. It happens in May every year and is attended by all the fame and fortune of the UK, including many members of the British royal family.
The Chelsea Flower Show is sponsored by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) and provides a space for gardeners and landscapers alike to show off their gardening skills. The RHS is a charity made up of staff and volunteers that have a passion for horticulture and they host many other charity events throughout the year. The Chelsea Flower Show is the most infamous and prestigious, by far.
The Chelsea Flower Show, founded in 1804, goes from the weird to wonderful from traditional meadow gardens to cutting-edge outdoor spaces. There are beautiful designs with specially-grown flowers, open spaces guests can walk through as well as food and drink services to enjoy the day out.
As well as the general spectacle that viewers observe at the Royal Hospital in Chelsea, there are numerous awards given to the best gardens and trade stands.
If you’re around London at the time of the Chelsea Flower Show, it’s definitely worth a visit. Tickets can easily be booked online and range from £30 to £80 per day. Package tickets to attend all five days of the event can also be purchased.
