The history of the Royal Horticultural Society dates back to the 1800s and is best-known as the country’s leading gardening charity. With several gardens to its name, most famous of all are its annual flower shows which promote horticulture around the country. Each with their own distinct character, they are an unmissable experience for gardening enthusiasts or newcomers alike.
Most prestigious of them all is Chelsea Flower Show, held in the grounds of the Royal Chelsea Hospital every year since 1913, apart from gaps during the two World Wars. Get your hands on tickets by joining us on our day trip – thousands visit from all across the globe, often including members of the Royal Family. Be inspired by the very best in garden design, with diverse themes in the Show Gardens, fresh contemporary gardens, the Artisan gardens and plenty more.

The RHS Flower Show Tatton Park has developed a reputation in recent years too, for highlighting innovative and cutting edge design. In the height of summer world class garden design is showcased within the generous parklands of Tatton Park in Cheshire. Highlights this year include a brand new Bus Stop Boulevard, where numerous bus stops will be covered in plants and designed by local communities. There will be an explosion of colour in the Floral Marquee and more inspiring gardens, from Back to Back Gardens to classic Show Gardens. Billed as the biggest garden party in the North, it promises a laid-back, friendly atmosphere.
