- Hampton court is a lovely place to visit and the flower show was very enjoyable, however, as one would expect, it was very busy. We would return.

An event no gardener will want to miss
Held against the backdrop of one of the great Royal Palaces, the Hampton Court Flower Show - with its fabulous show gardens, marquees, gift and gadgets - is packed with inspiration. And this year there's even the chance to step into a paradise where the air is filled with colourful wings in the new Butterfly Dome.
Single rooms are available for a supplement
Leaving the local area in the morning we'll head to the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show for the highlight of the weekend. Arriving for a show entrance time of 3pm, spend the afternoon exploring the 50 or so show gardens, including water gardens - a category unique to Hampton Court. Seek the advice of celebrity experts, watch demonstrations and pick up a wealth of traditional, practical and innovative ideas from top garden designers.
After your explorations, relax by the bandstand and enjoy the music, sit by the long water or treat yourself to a glass of champagne. However you choose to spend your time you're sure to have a really memorable visit, and head to our hotel full of ideas and enthusiasm for your own garden.
This morning we'll visit Royal Windsor. Wander the pretty streets of this lovely riverside town, enjoy afternoon tea or join our optional excursion to visit Windsor Castle and see the magnificent State Apartments that have welcomed British monarchs with comfort and style for many centuries. After a pleasant day in Windsor we'll continue home, arriving back in the local area by mid to late evening.
