A staple in every gardener’s calendar, the Chelsea Flower Show is one of the UK’s institutions and is great for anyone with a love of landscaping, design and all things green. Some of the highlights include a section of gardens focused on health and well-being as well as exhibits focused on gardening in smaller spaces aimed at city-dwellers with green fingers. This is the first year that the show hours have been extended into the evening and means you can enjoy the space at twilight, with The Chelsea Late Event which is aiming for a younger audience. There will be bands, an artisan food market and wandering artists which make for a more interactive evening. From 4pm on the final day of the show the plant sell-off will begin.
Members receive discounts on tickets as well as access to the first two days of the exhibition which are closed to the public. Regular ticket buyers can attend from Thursday–Saturday with tickets ranging from £38.00 for entry after 5.30pm to £65.00 for a full day of access. On Saturday only all-day tickets are available, so keep that in mind if you’re unable to attend during the week.
