    We'll be in London 20-28 May on vacation (or holiday :D ). I believe the Chelsea Flower Show will be going on during our visit. Is this a must-do? Any thoughts/tips? Thanks for any advice. :)

    It depends how much you enjoy gardening.
    I've been to their sister show at Hampton Court but not Chelsea itself. Fairly expensive tickets and very busy but great to see new plants and planting ideas (for UK climate). Some of the days (probably Tues and Wed) are only open to RHS members - but you could join online for a fee. Have you looked at their website or looked for YouTube videos to see if it is going to be of interest to you?

    If I were on holiday I think I'd rather visit a garden e.g. Kew, than the show.

    Thanks very much for the replies. DW enjoys light gardening but the event would probably be wasted on me. We'll probably visit Kew Gardens with our London Pass while we're there, so we'll probably focus on that and some of the other parks in London. Thanks again.
