Belgravia in Bloom
The Language of Flowers

20 – 25 May 2019

The annual Belgravia in Bloom festival will see a flourish of floral activity across the unique streets. This year, the theme of ‘The Language of Flowers’ invites you to uncover the secret meanings behind flowers.

Inspired by the Victorian-era concept where secret messages were sent through flowers, bouquets and potted plants. A language heralded as one of the most discreet and beautiful forms of communication.

Join us in Belgravia for more than 50 spectacular installations, as well as immersive floral themed events in Eccleston Yards (entrance from Eccleston Place) and the Halkin Arcade (just off Motcomb Street).

Halkin Arcade

The recently refurbished Halkin Arcade will host Mood Gardens – four small immersive gardens planted to improve and relieve stress. Entry into these installations are all free.

Each garden has been designed to evoke specific feelings, based on the Language of Flowers, and provide a unique sensory experience. 

  • The Serenity Garden: Recharge the body as you immerse yourself in lavender– the flower known for enhancing calm and serenity. Visitors can lie beneath the wall of lavender relaxing in soothing silence.
  • The Tunnel of Resilience: Wander through a tunnel, taking in the strengthening qualities of the beautiful dogwood flowers suspended above.
  • The Canopy of Friendship: Visitors can sit in the freesia canopy with a loved one, surrounded by the colourful flowers representing lasting friendship.
  • The Spiral of Good Luck: Wisteria is known as the flower that brings luck. As visitors journey to the centre of the spiral, walls of white Japanese wisteria line the way, immersing guests in the lucky flower.
