Flower Carnaval takes over London

Category: Shows

Last week was a very special one here in London as the town was transformed into a big flower Carnaval because of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show!

The show may happen behind the closed gates, provided that you haven’t gotten a ticket in time, but there is so much other flower beauty in London during the show that you will manage to enjoy it even without stepping on the RHS grounds.

This year London was transformed into a flower Carnaval by Chelsea in bloom, which runs for the 11th time. Chelsea In Bloom is a great floral art show where local retailers, restaurants and hotels create gorgeous displays and decorations for the passers-by to enjoy. This year some shops were beyond the bounds of Chelsea – like The Bloomsbury Hotel and French Connection – have also gotten in on the act.

With everything coming up tropical in London last week, and I’ve gone around town and picked out my favourite flower displays to share with you below!
