World-renowned, glamorous and quintessentially British, The Chelsea Flower Show is a truly unique and unforgettable day out. It is attended by members of the British Royal Family and attracts flower lovers from all over the world. But a flight from Melbourne to London is long, almost 23 hours to be exact, so you’ll want to make sure the trip worth your while. That’s why we recommend an extended flora-themed holiday with Insight Vacations.
Each of the three hand-crafted Itineraries below feature a trip to the 2020 flower show, and then give you the flexibility to head in whichever direction your green thumb takes you; from the Alps & central Europe to the South and the gardens of England & Wales to the North. Whet your appetite with some highlights of last year’s event, then scroll down for the Itineraries.
