Culture Calendar: London’s Chelsea Flower Show
January 2, 2009By: Ruthanne Terrero
The Informed Traveler says London is grand any time of year, but we're especially fond of the town in May, when the RHS Chelsea Flower Show heralds in the warmer days in elegant style.

Mark the date now: This year's event will be held from May 19-23. Considered the ultimate event in one's gardening calendar, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show is the place to spot out the latest trends in horticultural habits, to reconnect with agriculturally minded friends and to simply take in the glorious workings of Mother Nature. Now, if you're fond of staying in luxury hotels, we realize you may be used to taking a car and driver wherever you go. However, the folks at The RHS Chelsea Flower Show advise that it's wisest to take public transport, since the venue for the event (Royal Hospital Chelsea London SW3) is within the "Transport for London congestion zone," which means you'll pay a good fee to arrive by automobile. Hint: The Sloane Square Underground Station, on the District and Circle Line) is a 10-minute walk. Visit www.tfl.gov.uk for more information. Victoria is the closest mainline station. A shuttle service runs between Victoria train station and the show throughout the day.
