Chelsea Flower Show Pre-Tour
May 17-20, 2020
Every gardener should see the Chelsea Flower Show at least once. The Show has been a staple of the British social and cultural scene for nearly 150 years. This annual spring festival is held for five days each May and features a large variety of exotic plants, as well as gardens designed by celebrities and other notables. The event is held on the grounds of London's Royal Hospital, and it is one of the largest and most celebrated flower shows in the world. This exclusive tour includes Royal Horticultural Society membership and admittance to the prestigious flower show on member‘s-only day. Before the show we travel through southeastern England to visit private gardens and estates including Great Dixter, Sissinghurst and Beth Chatto Gardens before returning to London for the Flower Show!
