The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is a part of the British heritage. It is one of the most famous flower shows in the UK and probably in the world. This year the show is taking place between the 20 – 24th May 2014. The displays are colourful, vibrant and genuinely beautiful. Garden enthusiasts come from various areas wanting to gain inspiration and tips on how to transform their gardens at home.
The show first began in Chelsea with only 244 exhibitors; this has now over doubled to 550 exhibitors over 11 acres of grounds. The displays take 25 days to create, helping to justify just how amazing this show is. If you are a keen gardener then this is the perfect event for you.
The Chelsea Flower Show pairs up perfectly with an afternoon tea, so why not make a weekend of your trip and come to visit us in Mayfair too. Our boutique hotel in Mayfair is in a great location as it only takes about 10 minutes on the tube or a quick bus journey to the showground. The closest tube station to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show is Sloane Square where a short walk will take you to the Royal Hospital, Chelsea, venue.
At Flemings Mayfair you can choose between a traditional, champagne or chocoholic afternoon tea each with a different menu. For example, the traditional Afternoon Tea at our 4 star deluxe hotel includes freshly made sandwiches, petit fours, delicate cupcakes, light fluffy scones with jam and clotted cream, served with your choice of Damman Frerés Teas, in the chic surroundings of The Cocktail & Tea Rooms. You can also opt for a champagne afternoon tea which will include a glass of Jacquart Champagne.
