The Hampton Court Flower Show is one of the biggest horticultural events in the UK probably only second to the Chelsea Flower show in May. If you’re in to flowers you’ve probably been excited about this date for some time so I don’t really need to explain to you why it is a fun day out. But even if you’ve never even picked a flower before there are lots of reasons to give the show a visit this year. Firstly you will get a chance to see Hampton court palace and gardens at its best in the middle of summer but this time if you see something in the gardens you like you can probably buy it and take it home with you.
Fashionistas will enjoy the Catwalk in Bloom shows where models will be wearing the latest fashions made out of flowers and plants! Experience Quaglino’s kitchen where you can learn how to prepare fruit and veg from the head chef at the Mayfair restaurant as well as sampling the food and taking home recipe cards. Personally I can’t wait to visit the coffee garden which is sponsored by Revive and designed to remind us of the steam and scent and colours of coffee! Mmmm
