Q Do you offer any discounts to the Royal Windsor Flower Show?
The Royal Windsor Flower Show raises funds for the Royal Windsor Rose & Horticultural Society whose purpose is to create, deliver and support charitable projects in our local community. This year we engaged over 650 children through our school gardening and craft initiative delivered by local company Little Muddy Boots and partner charity Busy Buttons CORE. The RWRHS has also delivered a horticultural residential course for Centrepoint Young people in April 2023. To maintain our support  of young people we regret that discounted tickets are not available at this time. Thank you for your understanding.
