Anyone going to Chelsea Flower show this week?

I am going tomorrow and I am so looking forward to it (first time)
(Had to post cos I am SOOO excited!). Just watched it on BBC and I am even more excited!

Any tips about what to do/see?
What are the restaurants like? do you need to book a table in advance?
I will be in a wheelchair so if anyone has gone round in a chair and has any tips about how easy this is I would appreciate it

I'm afraid I'm not going so am no use at all, but laughing here as the Queen left her shower cap on when visiting! Sorry not to be more helpful!

I'm going on Saturday with my Mum who's coming down from Scotland specially!! Very excited!

I remember my Mum going with my granny when Mum was about my age, she has been a few times since, last time with my mil, and I was very [jealous] that I hadn't been invited. The ticket is part of my birthday present which was last week. ooooh very excited grin

let me know re restaurants, was thinking the same thing. Think it will be wheelchair friendly, no concrete knowledge, just a feeling!!

We are going Thursday first time. DH got us the tickets as Christmas present, as he knows I've always wanted to go, and he's arranged the childcare. Very excited!

My mu has been a few times but stopped going as she didn't like teh crowds and being herded around, and also said there was nowhere to sit down. hmm

Heyho I'm not going there for a sit down. grin

Ignore the gardens - watch them on telly
just breathe in the marquee
and snigger at the big boys toys in the equipment avenue
