If the nearest you get to gardening is mowing your lawn, then break out your sunglasses and head down to the Chelsea to see how it's really done.

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is the gardening equivalent of Ascot -- when the great and good of the gardening world descend on Christoper Wren's architectural masterpiece. Plenty of celebs will be in attendance -- chief of which will be our own green-fingered Queen.

More than eight hundred botanical brains will spend four weeks plotting their plots in the grounds of the Royal Hospital. On display will be a mesmorising array of show gardens and plants from world-renowned designers and nurseries. As a showcase of all the latest trends, you'll be sure to take a little bit of inspiration home for your own garden.

Note: The first two days are for RHS members only.

The Royal Hospital was designed by Christopher Wren as a home for veteran and disabled soldiers. It is now home to the famous Chelsea Pensioners.

Enjoy the view from Primrose Hill – Every day
Primrose Hill offers one of the finest views of London from anywhere in the city. When you first clap eyes on it it doesn’t seem that high, but once you start the short trek to the top you realise that it’s steeper than it looks! When you finally get to the summit you can enjoy an uninterrupted view from the London Eye to Canary Wharf.


See London’s skyline from Parliament Hill – Every day
Parliament Hill’s fame today rests on its spectacular views of London’s skyline. At a height of 98 metres it is the tallest point on Hampstead Heath and offers unbeatable views of the city. You can enjoy a vista that takes in the London Eye, St Paul’s, the Gherkin, Canary Wharf and everything in between.


Guided tour of Highgate Cemetery – Every day
Highgate Cemetery’s grandiose layout contains some of the most flamboyant tombs in London. At first sight it might seem that the cemetery has fallen into disrepair, but the overgrown graves lend an atmosphere that no other cemetery can match. Famous graves include those of Charles Dickens’ family (although not the novelist himself, who is buried in Westminster Abbey), Michael Faraday and Lucian Freud.
