Didn’t get tickets to the Chelsea Flower Show? Don’t worry, the shops and restaurants around put on a display that is nearly as impressive as the gardens inside.
Each year Chelsea in Bloom takes a different theme. Start at Duke of York square at the beautiful heart of flowers and have a wander – you’ll soon see lots of shops taking part. It’s also worth visiting Annabel’s in Mayfair (main picture) and The Chelsea Ivy Garden further down the King’s Road – both of which have impressive floral covered displays.
