Chelsea Flower Show Tickets, 2018 Dates And Prices

Chelsea Flower Show tickets, 2018 are available for dates from the 22nd –26th May. Tickets for the Show are very difficult to come by as The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has to restrict the sale of tickets to the garden show due to demand outstripping supply. Tickets are not made available to the public for the first two days of the show and you are only able to buy a few tickets per household for the rest of the garden show.  The RHS on sale dates are easily missed and Chelsea tickets then sell out. Don't miss out we make obtaining these hard to get tickets easy. We can provide the highly sought after All Day Entry Tickets for this sell-out RHS Garden Show.

What is the best day to go to the Chelsea Flower Show? On the VIP days of the Garden Show, Tuesday & Wednesday, when the venue is far less crowded. These tickets are therefore more expensive. We also supply entry for the Public days, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, which is a lot busier.

Chelsea Garden Show – The Charity Gala Preview.
The Queen always appears to enjoy her visit to Chelsea every year, to attend the charity gala evening on the opening Monday. Ticket costs for the Queen’s attendance on the preview day are extremely high, but some of the proceeds go to charity. Champagne, canapes, and music await the attendees who are lucky enough to win a place at this establishment perennial networking day. Blue chip company directors, high net worth individuals all vie to attend on this very special networking day.

This event is also known as the Great Spring Show, it is held for five days in May every year by the promoters the R.H.S. Royal Horticultural Society. The show's venue for this extravaganza of horticultural excellence is the Royal Hospital in Chelsea, London.

It’s been around a bit, since 1912 to be precise at its current venue, and it gets bigger and bigger every year. The Great Spring Show, its predecessor, has been in existence since 1862 and has never missed a year since. It has metamorphosed into an event with huge appeal and interest globally. In fact, attendees come from all over the globe to visit probably the Worlds’ greatest gardening event. This makes tickets highly sought after. The event highlights include the cutting-edge designer show gardens, Artisan and Urban Gardens with the pièce de résistance being the Floral Marquee.

Why are tickets to the show expensive and so hard to get? 
View the breath-taking plant displays of vibrant colour and smell the floral scents, combined with a wonderful and spectacular atmosphere of excitement. It's blooming marvellous!The Show’s popularity increased throughout the second half of the century – until its popularity became its most important problem. Overcrowding within the tents became problematic during the years between the wars, but the number of show tents was increased to overcome this.

During the seventies, the attendance at the Chelsea Show climbed, in 1978 by as much as 6,000 visitors in a single year. The following year, the severe crowding in the mornings at the turnstiles became so severe the turnstiles had to be closed temporarily. Emergency action was taken and the show start time was moved to 8.00am and closing time to 8.00pm. A discounted late entry ticket, you cannot see all the show in this short space of time, was introduced to stagger the entry of attendees to Chelsea away from the extremely busy morning time-slot.

The show is so busy a one-way system was introduced to get through all the ticket holders visiting and a cap on the number of tickets sold introduced. But numbers of potential visitors continue to increase, and the show sells out in record time every year. The RHS ration the tickets and when they go on sale & sell out quickly it is difficult to predict when. It is best to secure your tickets early to guarantee your place at the gardening event of the year.
