The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is perhaps the most famous flower show in the world. The annual five-day flower show exhibits in Chelsea, considered one of London, England's most fashionable neighborhoods. This year the Chelsea Flower Show will take place from May 22-26. Originally known as the Great Spring Show, it first began in 1862 and moved to London in 1888. The Chelsea Flower Show is now one of the most popular flower shows in England, with the Royal Family attending each year and the BBC covering its events extensively.

 

Approximately 157,000 attendees visit the RHS Chelsea Flower Show every year to see a variety of innovative horticultural exhibitions. This year's gardens include the Embroidered Minds Epilepsy Garden, the Viking's Wellness Garden and the Wuhan Water Garden. Visitors can stop by the Great Pavilion to see splendid displays from dozens of world-renowned nurseries. Check out the Chelsea Late exhibit on May 25, as it allows guests to enjoy live music among the illuminated Ranelagh Gardens.
