RHS Chelsea Flower Show

Harrogate Flower Show

Chelsea plays host to one of the biggest flower shows in the country in May, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Alan Titchmarsh, RHS Vice President, will be designing his first RHS Chelsea Flower Show Garden in almost 30 years to celebrate Britain in Bloom's 50th anniversary

Check the London weather forecast before heading to the Royal Hospital, Chelsea and its extensive grounds, the home of the flower show. 

Exhibitors from the UK, and across the world, spend months preparing their displays to take to the show, hoping to be crowned with one of the show's top rosettes.

Exhibitors at this year's Chelsea Flower Show include:

  • Help for Heroes
  • Royal National Institute of Blind People
  • Homebase 

There is also a new Discovery Zone, which aims to show visitors about the efforts being made to protect the world around us, with a 360 degree auditorium and a chance for a 4D flight over the UK.

Friday 23 May will also give visitors the chance to experience RHS Chelsea at twilight, with an evening of light opera by Opera Holland Park.
