Chatsworth Flower Show

The ultimate gardener's day out

The first new RHS flower show in over a decade will take place, against the background of Capability Brown's remarkable landscapes, in the magnificent grounds of Chatsworth House. Don't miss your chance to be one of the first to visit the must-do horticultural event of 2017.

Tour Highlights And Inclusions

  • Entry to the RHS Chatsworth Flower Show (entry to Chatsworth House is not included)
  • One night's dinner, bed and English breakfast accommodation at a good hotel in the North West
  • Coach travel throughout
  • The services of a friendly Tour Manager

Single rooms are available for a supplement


Day One

Leaving your pick-up point, this morning we'll take a leisurely journey to our hotel. Check in, unpack and then relax until dinner is served.

Day Two

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.
