Staying at The Holiday Inn, West Drayton
2 DAYS | 10th July 2021
Experience the world’s largest annual flower show in the setting of an historic palace; this year’s RHS Hampton Court Garden Festival transforms 25 acres of parkland into a blaze of colour. Garden lovers can marvel at the beautiful flowers and the innovative conceptual gardens showcasing the next big names. Watch demonstrations by celebrity gardeners, pick up new ideas and learn how to implement them via a variety of talks and demonstrations. During the weekend we also visit Wisley, the historic home of the RHS with one of the largest plant collections in the world.
The base for our tour is The Holiday Inn, West Drayton, ideally located for both our visits. The hotel boasts a fitness room, bar and restaurant. Guest rooms come with a seating area, a flatscreen TV with satellite channels and a private bathroom. All rooms have air conditioning, tea and coffee making facilities and free WiFi. The hotel also has a lift.
We depart Macclesfield in the morning calling for coffee en-route to RHS Wisley, a world leading garden and flagship of the RHS. Having expanded hugely over the years to its current size of 240 acres, there is much to see in the rock garden, formal and walled gardens, mixed borders, rose garden, glasshouses, fruit field and arboretum. After all that horticultural delight, why not pay a visit to the café for some restorative refreshments and then the plant centre for those all-important purchases? Late afternoon, we head for our hotel, with dinner and evening at leisure.
After breakfast we depart for Hampton Court Palace where we spend the full day at the Flower Show. If you would prefer to visit the Palace instead, we are happy to deduct the cost of the Flower Show allowing you to pay directly at the Palace. We head for home late afternoon making a comfort stop en-route. We aim to arrive in Macclesfield late evening.
If you prefer to visit Hampton Court Palace we are happy to deduct the Flower Show ticket and you can pay direct at the Palace.
