World-class culture, fashion, music, food and history – and a mind-boggling array of bucket list experiences – packed into one extraordinary, incomparable destination.
Travel bucket list idea:
Chelsea Flower Show
London, United Kingdom (UK)|www.rhs.org.uk|
Glastonbury for garden-lovers, this five-day flower show comes to West London each May, drawing crowds of plant, flower and landscaping enthusiasts to its displays in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea.
Mini, themed gardens might imitate a Japanese garden or create a fairytale setting; stands for landscaping, furniture and accessory companies inspire ideas for your garden at home; and clouds of diverse flower varieties create a rainbow of blooms. The overall feel is Alice in Wonderland meets Gardeners’ World.
Getting there & doing it
Tickets go on sale in November-December, and they do sell out, so book at least a couple of months in advance.
When to do it
The show usually runs from Tuesday to Saturday on the third week of May; the first two days are only open to Royal Horticultural Society Members, who also enjoy discounts on tickets. Friday and Saturday are the busiest days.
