SALISBURY + THE GRAND STONEHENGE DAHLIA SHOW

Saturday  28th September 2024

 

We plan on visiting Salisbury for a couple of hours as its market day today & you can get lunch there before we travel to see  the spectacular floral displays at Stonehenge this September as we travel back in time to the Victorian dahlia shows.

During the 1840s, Stonehenge hosted popular dahlia shows attracting crowds of thousands of people. The historic shows involved a variety of competitions, including the creation of sculptures made entirely from flowers and the cultivation of prize-winning dahlias.

Join us as we visit to see  this colourful part of the Stonehenge story. Discover expertly crafted floral sculptures and vote for your favourite, admire locally grown dahlias in a traditional show. Plus, there will be opportunities to take a selfie amongst our dazzling floral displays.
