Garden Rehoming

Where can you visit this garden after the Show?

Following its larger than life reveal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2022, the RAF Benevolent Fund ‘Strongest Link’ Garden has been rebuilt for a larger site at Biggin Hill Airport, where it forms part of the popular Battle of Britain Museum history trail. The watchful airman will welcome visitors to the airport for many years to come and the garden is accessible to everyone who would like a peaceful moment of reflection during their visit.

"This has been a personal journey of discovery for me as a designer and for my family. My father was a navigator in RAF Bomber Command during the Second World War; his plane was shot down and he journied across the Pyranees to safety, finally making his way home. I feel so proud to have created something that pays tribute to him and the sacrifice made by so many men and women in pursuit of freedom." - John Everiss, Designer
