This botanical sanctuary lies off Little Venice near Maida Vale, through a passageway known as Clifton Villas. The nurseries having operated as a garden centre in the heart of Maida Vale since 1851. Probably why they’ve become a huge hit amongst green-fingered locals, but also with those looking to escape the concrete jungle and chill in a green oasis next to the water. I’d recommend heading down to browse, even if you don’t want to buy. Plus I also like to stop by here from time to time for the brunch, which is pretty decent.
