Chelsea Flower Show in full swing

0

BRITAIN’S MOST prestigious flower show has been in full swing this week with hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of floral delights.

The highlight of Britain’s horticultural calendar, the annual Chelsea Flower Show in London’s sprawling Royal Hospital complex features a host of elaborate gardens designed by experts and is famous for its unusual installations.

The event is also one of the staples of the city’s spring social calendar, with celebrities including media mogul Rupert Murdoch and Oscar-winning actress Judi Dench in attendance this year.

The Royal family are also perpetual visitors – the Queen made her annual visit this week and the Duchess of Cambridge was also pictured browsing the blossoms.

The show ends tomorrow (Saturday) and organisers said it was expected to attract around 165,000 visitors.
