I love doing this tour! Paris and London are
two of the most historic and green cities in the world with so much
to do and so many things to see. The best way of seeing them is to
get out and walk … you will have free days in each city to enjoy
them and visit the places that you have on your list that will make
your trip just that much more memorable. This tour always books up
so get your registration in soon on it to secure your spot
especially since 2013 is the 100th Anniversary of Chelsea!!
Paris is the capital and largest city of France. It is situated on
the river Seine, in northern France, at the heart of the
Île-de-France region (or Paris Region).
The city of Paris, within its administrative limits largely
unchanged since 1860, has an estimated population of over 2,000,000
but the Paris metropolitan area has a population of over 11,000,000.
An important settlement for more than two millennia, Paris is today
one of the world's leading business and cultural centres, and its
influence in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion,
science, and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the
world's major global cities.
London is the capital of England and the United Kingdom. It is
Britain's largest and most populous metropolitan area. A major
settlement for two millennia, its history goes back to its founding
by the Romans, who called it Londinium. London's core, the ancient
City of London, or the 'square mile' financial district, largely
retains its mediaeval boundaries. Since at least the 19th century,
the name "London" has also referred to the metropolis developed
around this core.
The Chelsea Flower Show is the lasting title of an exhibition with a
history of over 140 years. The Show was originally called the Royal
Horticultural Society's Great Spring Show, first held in 1862, at
the RHS garden in Kensington. In 1888 when that garden was closed
(the Science Museum and Imperial College now occupy its site), the
Society found itself without a site in central London at which to
hold the Show. It was then moved to Temple Gardens near the
Embankment, where it was held under canvas until 1911. In 1912, the
Temple Show was cancelled to make way for the Royal International
Horticultural Exhibition. Sir Harry Veitch, the great nurseryman,
secured the grounds of the Royal Hospital, Chelsea, for this one-off
event. It proved such a good site for an exhibition that the Great
Spring Show was moved there in 1913, where it has taken place almost
2013 marks the 100th Anniversary of Chelsea so if you have never
been to this show before - make this the year!!
