London welcomes a gorgeous display of colourful blooms and ingenious gardens for the annual RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016. Taking place at Royal Hospital Chelsea, the grounds of the hospital come alive with show gardens, small gardens and stunning horticultural displays. It’s a hugely popular attraction – the event receives around 150,000 visitors every year!
This year, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show features special exhibitions celebrating The Queen’s 90th birthday, an actual carriage from the Belmond British Pullman and an installation of Phillips Johnson’s memorable poppies that created such a stir at the Tower of London in 2014. See talks and demonstrations from professional gardeners plus lots of vendors offering a spot of green-fingered retail therapy.
