Chelsea Flower Show, London

So my wonderful Mum and I took a long weekend in London to visit the Chelsea Flower Show. It’s always been on my to-do list and living back in Ireland now allows for a quick trip to London Baby!

I bought tickets back in January and these were about £45 per person. We stayed at the Royal Lancaster London, overlooking Hyde Park. The location of this hotel was excellent – Lancaster Gate tube was just underneath us and this is on the Central line which connects you to the shopping mecca that is Oxford Street. We flew in to London Stansted so it was really easy to get from Liverpool Street Station (via the Stansted Express – 47 minutes from Stansted to the City) out to the hotel. Not having to change tube lines with suitcases is a blessing! The hotel was nice, the location was definitely the number one selling point – the rooms were small but that’s pretty much par for the course in London.

We did Chelsea on Friday afternoon after lunch at Polpo, Chelsea. The weather was glorious all weekend so we ate outside and there was a lovely relaxed vibe. Sloane Square tube station is the closest 🙂
