The RHS Chatsworth Flower Show promises to be a spectacular and fascinating addition to the horticultural calendar. Laid out to maximise the magnificent views and grounds of its unique venue, and with specially designed bridges across the River Derwent linking different sites, the show aims to champion "the horticultural innovation of today and the future".
The highlight of the show will surely be the re-creation of Sir Joseph Paxton's magnificent Great Conservatory at Chatsworth. The original took four years to build and was the largest glass building in England until the construction of the ill-fated Crystal Palace in London, but this new version will house floral displays and miniature Mediterranean and tropical habitats.
Explore the show gardens and see the entries to the competition focused on the RHS's new science strategy (Gardening in a Changing World). Shop for the latest gardening gadgets and accessories, and discover the latest trends and innovation in the world of garden design.
In the late afternoon we'll leave Chatsworth to begin our journey home, heads filled with new ideas to try in our own gardens.

Joining your holiday
Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.
Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.
The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.
If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.Back to top
