The RHS Chelsea Flower Show (or the Great Spring Show) takes place for five days in May on the grounds of London's Royal Hospital Chelsea. It is often visited by members of the British Royal Family and celebrities. Major attractions of the Chelsea Flower Show are amazing gardens highlighted with Floral Marquee. The main garden, as well as Artisan and Urban Gardens, are designed by leading artists in the field.

Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) organised the Chelsea Flower Show since 1913. The Great Pavilion of the show covers about 11,775 square meters (2.90 acres)—it has room to park about 500 city buses. Such companies as McBean’s Orchids, Blackmore & Langdon and Kelways Plants have been making their displays on the show since 1913. In 1937, the show featured Empire Exhibition to mark King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Coronation Year with plants from Australia, Canada, and East Africa. The show was cancelled during World War II and resumed in 1947.

Visitors are encouraged to buy tickets in advance, as prices increase before the event.
