The most over subscribed of our annual day trips due to a strict ticket limit - this 2 day tour includes entry to the Flower Show and also a visit to The Chelsea Physic Garden

The World renowned Chelsea Flower Show is probably to most over-subscribed of all the day-trips Bluebird offers each year.  A strict limit on group ticket sales means we can never secure enough admission tickets to meet the overwhelming demand and so inevitably end up disappointing many. To address this issue we are introducing this 2 day tour which includes not only an admission ticket for Chelsea, but also an opportunity to visit the Chelsea Physic Garden – the oldest botanic garden in London which houses over 5,000 different medical, herbal, edible and other useful plants. A restful overnight hotel stay means we avoid the “crack-of-dawn” start associated with the day-trip, with only a short drive to Chelsea, arriving early enough to avoid the masses and allowing a longer visit to maximise your enjoyment of this fabulous event.

ITINERARY


Thursday - A relaxed mid-morning departure from Dorset with a stop en-route to source lunch. We drive into central London for an afternoon visit to The Chelsea Physic Garden, tucked away beside the Thames, its unique micro-climate has allowed the cultivation of plants not often found out of doors in the UK. Founded in 1673 by The Worshipful Society of Apothecaries to teach students to identify plants that can kill or cure, it has also run a global seed exchange since the 1700s. Its south facing aspect, good quality of light and warm light soil encourages prolific growth - in 1976 they recorded a bumper 7 pound crop of olives - a UK record! Later we drive out to Heathrow and check-in to our hotel for dinner and overnight stay.

Friday - After breakfast make our way back into town to arrive at the Chelsea Flower Show held in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in time for its 10am opening. Bringing together the best in gardening and horticulture, with beautiful displays showcasing the finest arrangements and offering garden workshops and sales. There are nursery exhibits and show gardens which will captivate and inspire at this truly Royal event. With over 500 exhibitors it really is a unique experience to see the stunning displays and take in the floral scents that fill the show. Gardening at its most gorgeous and glamourous - the flower show the whole world wants to see! We shall be leaving Chelsea at 5pm to drive back to Dorset, returning home that evening.
