The World’s most famous flower show, and also the most popular. The Royal Horticultural Society flower show began in Chiswick in 1833, moving to Kensington in 1862 where it became the Royal Horticultural Society Great Spring Show. In 1882 the show moved to a more central location
the Temple Gardens situated between Embankment and Fleet Street, and remained there until 1912. In 1913 the show again moved, this time to the Royal Hospital grounds in Chelsea where it has remained ever since. Popularity and attendances increased greatly in the 1970’s and 1980’s, from 2005 the show was increased from four days to five and now all tickets are sold in advance to prevent overcrowding; the show is attended annually by around 157,000 people. The first day – Tuesday – is designated for members and the show is open to public attendance from Wednesday through Saturday. A festival of extravagant colour, blooms, and endless variety the show is a cornucopia of everything related to the world of horticulture in all its many forms, and as such it rarely disappoints either the first time visitor or seasoned veteran. It’s worth mentioning that the final day, Saturday, is the day when most exhibitors sell off all their stock and displays; a great chance to grab a fabulous bargain. Located a short walk from Sloane Square tube station, just follow the crowds.
