The much-loved, annual Hampton Court Flower Show (3-8 Jul 2018) sees lovers of horticulture flock from far and wide to attend world’s biggest flower show, held against the magnificent backdrop of Hampton Court Palace.
This year’s show features a range of exhibits and sights, such as a meadow of freshly planted lavender, violet and lilac. For those seeking a more historical experience, the Evolve: Through the Roots of Time tour takes showgoers on a journey to discover earth’s plants – from the present day and all the way back to the barren landscapes that covered the planet over 500 million years ago.
Other attractions include the annual Festival of Roses, where you can discover hundreds of luscious roses – or simply take a stroll around the grounds for a quintessential summer experience.
