Are you gazing at dreary tones of grey outside your window? Fear not, it may be February but if anything spells S-U-M-M-E-R I-S C-O-M-I-N-G, it’s the latest announcement that the Hampton Court Garden Festival (also known as the Hampton Court Flower Show) have released their dates for summer 2021!

The Hampton Court garden festival is the largest, yearly (and in our opinion most exquisite) flower show in the world and will take place on the 6-11th of July this year.

So, dust off your summer glad rags (and of course your prettiest mask) and get booking.

Garden inspiration

Every year the Garden festival features gardens from inspiring designers new and established. Themes include sustainability and wellbeing encouraging you to reconnect with nature and gather inspiration for your own spaces.

If you’re in need of garden inspiration before the show starts? We highly recommend following Jo Ward at Hampton Court Palace on Instagram @hamptoncourtpalacegardener she has some incredible photos of life inside the palace gardens.

South West London

Hampton Court and the surrounding areas are filled with fun things to do. It’s packed with charm, history and beauty and has easy access to central London. We’ve recently updated our ‘10 places we love in South West London’ blog with ideas that even allow for social distancing. If you want to make a holiday out of your booking to the Hampton Court Garden festival, this is a great place to start planning.

Accommodation in Hampton Court

If you’re planning for more than a day trip, our luxury apartments are a stones throw from the Hampton Court Palace grounds. All our apartments offer you the freedom to come and go as you please, your own private front door, no shared public areas within the building, a secure entry system and allocated free parking.

Serviced apartment or a hotel?

All our apartments at Craven House are serviced. Apart from the amount of space provided, one of the big differences between a serviced apartment and a hotel is that you can choose when and what you eat. We can fill the fridge for you before you arrive or organise beautiful meals for special occasions.

Our housekeeping is totally flexible (dependant on Covid rules). You can choose when you want your apartment cleaned and we’ll be available throughout your stay to help with any queries or needs you may have. It’s important to us that you enjoy your stay, if you have any questions please call us.

Child and pet friendly accommodation

Having both kids and pets myself, I know it can be difficult, logistically, to find a solution for a few days away with the whole family! When I set up Craven House I made sure we had luxury family and pet-friendly apartments. Just call us to discuss suitable apartments and any extra requirements you and your family will need during your stay.

I look forward to welcoming you to South West London in full bloom in July, in the meantime stay safe and enjoy planning a more exciting year!

Best wishes,
