Last year, new additions to the line-up included The Leadenhall Building (aka The Cheesegrater), an eco-home in Ealing and Ott’s Yard, an architecturally impressive group of re-purposed sheds in Tufnell Park. 2015’s buildings and series of events will be available from mid-August. Of the more than 800 venues involved, the vast majority will be open to all on a walk-up basis, but around ten per cent will require advance booking

The greatest of all London events for those with green-fingered tendencies, the Chelsea Flower show takes place between 19 – 23 May 2015.

Once Britain’s largest flower show (it has now been overtaken by RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show), it is still the most prestigious. It is the place to see cutting-edge garden design, new plants and find ideas to take home.

Day tickets start from £46 and can be bought on the RHS website.

For a weekend rich in open spaces and wonderful planting, why not combine with a trip to Hyde Park and Kensington Palace?
