Belgravia in Bloom – A Beautifully British Flower Festival

Well, the days are now officially longer than the nights, the air is warming, the birds are singing, and the flowers are blooming, which can only mean one thing… Yes, spring has sprung.

Spring is a season that signifies hope for a lot of people, as we say goodbye to the long, dark, cold, and grey days and say hello to warm sunshine, blue skies, and good times. Okay, that might be a bit of an overreaction as we are in the UK, but even so, the upcoming months should still signify good times for a great deal of us.

As mentioned, trees and flowers begin to bloom as the weather improves, which is particularly apt today, as we’re talking about one of the most highly anticipated dates in many a flower aficionado’s calendar – Belgravia in Bloom.

Soon to return for its seventh year, this floral display in the heart of Belgravia, London, is a floral event you won’t want to miss.

Stunning settings for stunning displays

Belgravia is one of London’s most aesthetically pleasing districts. Quirky, distinguished, and entirely unique, Belgravia really stands out for all of the right reasons.

With quaint shops, upmarket restaurants, traditional pubs, and Parisian-feeling cafes, Belgravia is the perfect place to explore and makes for a fantastic day out or the perfect weekend getaway destination.

From the 23rd until the 29th of May, however, Belgravia levels up even further, as it hosts its now traditional annual flower festival – Belgravia in Bloom.

‘Beautifully British’

The theme of this year’s show is ‘Beautifully British’ where we’ll see some of Britain’s most iconic moments, landmarks, historical figures, and traditions reimagined with flowers in some of the most ingenious and eye-catching ways you could ever wish for.

Expect plenty of colours, especially reds, whites, and blues in spectacular displays from florists both local and from afar. Just some of the names creating displays this year include Moyses Stevens, Judith Blacklock, and Neill Strain.

Belgravia itself is stunning year-round and is easily one of the most “Instagrammable” parts of London. Add to this the gorgeous floral displays in every colour imaginable, and hopefully plenty of blue skies and warm sunshine, and you have yourself an influencer’s dream and the perfect setting for an unforgettable day.
