LONDON, May 15, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The RHS Chelsea Flower Show kicks off on 20th May this year, and a number of luxury hotels in the area are serving up delicious tea packages for green-fingered visitors. Formally known as The Great Spring Show, the floral extravaganza had been held every May by the Royal Horticultural Society since 1862. As a quintessentially British day out, there's no more traditional accompaniment than a classic English high tea.
Luxury hotels nearby serving afternoon tea include 11 Cadogan Gardens, the Victorian boutique hotel in Chelsea. Its indulgent tea package is served in the Drawing Room between 2pm and 6pm, and includes a selection of pastries, mini tartlets, mini macaroons, mini Crème brûlées, assorted choux pastries, scones and jam and finger sandwiches.
This year the Chelsea Flower Show takes place from 20 – 24th May in the grounds of the Royal Chelsea Hospital, with two gardens specially commemorating the 100th anniversary of the First World War. Visitors can expect a dizzying display of blooms, this being the finest of the RHS flower shows, and plenty of celebrity visitors too, with the Queen regularly in attendance.
