Each year thousands of people are visiting Royal Hospital Chelsea in May to have their senses ravished by the displays of the world’s most brilliant horticultural talents and their choreographed teams.
Many of our returning tenants are choosing us for their stay during the show in order to visit or participate in the event due to the convenient location of our holiday rentals in Chelsea. This year, we ‘ve been also offering a 15% discount to all Chelsea Flower Show exhibitors as part of our 25th anniversary celebrations.
With 2016’s Chelsea Flower Show being almost one month away, we thought a blog post with our personal favourites since 2011 would be the perfect way to get you in a flowery mood. So here it is, a rundown with 24 of the most inspiring, spectacular, jaw dropping Chelsea Flower Show moments of the last five years.
