The RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017 has arrived and it has brought summer with it. The show was bathed in glorious sunshine for the Private Viewing, which hosted a number of superstars and members of the Royal Family. The show has become known as a highlight of the British Summer Social Season with other events organised by the RHS following in hot pursuit. 

Dame Judi Dench and Jennifer Saunders were among those in attendance at RHS Chelsea this year, with HM The Queen and Prince Philip enjoying their traditional preview of the show as well. The Duchess of Cambridge also attended, along with a number of other celebrity guests.

Highlights of the show include spectacular displays in the Great Pavilion. This is undoubtedly the place to be if you want to be impressed with glorious visual displays. The floral treats really tickle your senses and the scent and visuals that stem from many of the stands is utterly incredible.

Fortnam and Mason champagne is served throughout the show to those who wish to enjoy a glass of bubbles, while admiring the awarding-winning gardens.
