The RHS Garden Wisley Flower Show has won Best Event for Groups at the 2019 Group Leisure and Travel Awards, as voted for by readers of Group Leisure & Travel magazine. The annual Reader Awards celebrate first-class destinations, attractions and providers across group travel.
Melissa Hackney, Groups Marketing Manager for RHS Gardens said, “We’re absolutely thrilled to have received this recognition by group travel organisers for our fabulous RHS Garden Wisley Flower Show. It makes a wonderful day out for groups as you can combine the show itself, with all its fantastic displays, trade stands and garden goodies with one of the world’s most beautiful gardens. It also offers superb value for money as entry to the show is included with garden entry. We look forward to welcoming groups to the garden, and to many inspirational RHS Garden and Flower Show visits in the future.”
Next year, the RHS Garden Wisley Flower Show will take place between 8 – 13 September 2020. This six-day floral extravaganza will feature a variety of specialist nurseries and trade stands, with top quality plants and garden goodies. Visitors can gain access to expert advice and browse and buy from RHS Chelsea and Hampton Flower Show medal winners as well as enjoying the floral display by the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS) and the National Dahlia Society Annual show. Entry to the Show is also included with garden entry.
As the historic home of the Royal Horticultural Society, RHS Garden Wisley is one of the world’s finest gardens and is a popular option for groups day out. The Flower Show is one of many events at the garden which has year-round appeal, with 240 acres which are constantly updated to ensure there is always something new to see including incredible borders, colourful cottage garden areas and a fabulous Glasshouse.
There is also a new welcome area with a dedicated desk for groups which opened in June 2019 and has transformed the arrival experience at the garden. Visitors now arrive through an avenue of cherry trees, before arriving at a 100-seater restaurant, cafe, shop and expanded plant centre. As well as a dedicated welcome team, groups can benefit from discounted rates, free entry for the coach driver and tour leader, a free refreshment voucher for the coach driver and a £5 discount retail voucher for all group members (minimum spend applies).
