Chelsea In Bloom

Nothing signals the beginning of summer in London than a visit to Chelsea In Bloom.

The much anticipated alternative annual floral art show has returned to the streets of Chelsea for it’s 12th year. Taking place alongside the renowned RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Chelsea In Bloom sees local stores, restaurants and hotels compete for their floral masterpieces to win one of the coveted awards up for grabs.

This year’s theme is Floral Safari, and the streets of Chelsea are alive with zebras, giraffes and lions, hiding out in the floral jungles and savannahs.

Winners are chosen by a panel of judges with the ‘People’s Champion’ being awarded on Friday 26th May. Head to Chelsea this week to check out the entries and vote for your favourite here.

Here are some of our favourite spots:


Kiki McDonough have gone all out with this Giraffe and Monkey combo…



 the animals are escaping from Hackett…


another giraffe was spotted at Smythson…


while Poetry have transformed their storefront into a jungle complete with it’s own King!


Finally this Rhino display in Pavillion Road is available to buy, all proceeds go towards charities supporting endangered species.
