The world-renowned Fleurs de Villes are bringing show-stopping floral installations to Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Garden

Stunning floral displays intricately crafted to tell the story of some of the world’s most iconic destinations? Sounds like an intoxicating arrangement to us – and we guarantee it’ll be one of autumn’s hottest tickets.

Fleurs de Villes’ signature floral exhibitions

In a major coup for the capital, Edinburgh has been announced as the host city for the UK premiere of ‘Voyage’ – a sensational travel-themed exhibition of floral finesse. Putting the spotlight on Edinburgh’s floral talent, the experiential show will open to the public on 15th September, running until 24th September 2023 in the scenic setting of the Royal Botanic Garden.

A host of local floral artists – including Quate & Co. and Wild Flowers – have taken inspiration from the garden’s awe-inspiring botanical collections to create installations celebrating the cultures, people and heritage of countries including Japan, Argentina and India. After admiring Fleurs de Villes’ signature floral mannequins, visitors will have the opportunity to continue into the historic listed grandeur of Inverleith House to experience more incredible floral installations and watch demonstrations by local florists, plus cast their vote in a ‘fan favourite’ contest.

Known as ‘floral disruptors’, Fleurs de Villes are the brains behind international blockbuster exhibitions in cities including Sydney, New York, Chicago, Miami and Toronto, specialising in storytelling through large-scale floral installations.
