Details

This Mother's Day weekend, the much-loved Florimania extravaganza will be returning to the King’s State Apartments at Hampton Court Palace, bringing the historic building to life with vibrant floral displays and the sweet scents of spring.

This year we are celebrating flowers at the palace in a different way by collaborating with the Royal School of Needlework to bring you Embroidered treasures of Hampton Court Palace.

Explore how flowers have inspired embroidery throughout history by showcasing some of the most splendid florally-inspired items from the collections.

Each beautiful treasure on display will be thoughtfully interpreted by an accompanying floral arrangement for you to enjoy.
