Shrewsbury Flower Show

Southampton, Winchester

The Experience

Northern Belle Crest Logo

Today you are visiting the floral extravaganza that is the Shrewsbury Flower Show.

Your journey begins as you are welcomed aboard the Northern Belle by your liveried steward, who escorts you to your seat. Settle in and relax over a delicious brunch with a Bellini as the train makes its way to the Welsh Border.

On arrival at the train station, you board a coach for the short journey to the showground at Quarry Park. The show has been held here for more 130 years - the longest running horticultural event held in the same location. During the transfer enjoy the sights of this medieval town with over 600 listed buildings, cobbled passage ways known as "shuts" and quirky shops all nestled in the twists and turns of the River Severn.

At the showground, spend the afternoon at leisure, exploring at your own pace. Enjoy the colourful and aromatic displays, see top horticulturalists sharing advice in the lecture theatres and spot some famous TV chefs and personalities along the way. This show is not just for the green fingered, with singers and spectacular arena acts wowing the crowds throughout the day.

At the end of your inspiring visit, rejoin the coach for the journey back to the station, where the train is waiting to take you home. Enjoy a chilled glass of champagne as you settle back into your seat. Later a sumptuous five-course dinner with half a bottle of fine wine is served to round off a blooming marvellous day.
