Country Escape: Petersham Nuseries Richmond

Talking about all things Scandi in London, Petersham Nurseries Richmond is a must-see experience outside London. It takes around an hour away from London by train, and then a wonderful walk along the Thames riverside and suddenly you find yourself in the middle of the finest gem I certainly have seen for a long time.

It doesn’t matter which time of the year you go, but depending on the season the experience is different. I have visited during summer time, but I would love to find time to go during the colder months.

At the heart of Petersham Nurseries is the Nursery and Garden Shop, a verdant oasis of flora. Stocking both familiar and unusual specimens of plants and flowers, alongside artisanal gardening tools etc.

But what drew me to Richmond was their Café and Teahouse, which offers seasonal food, complemented with fresh statement salads. Most importantly their savoury offerings include homemade cakes, British teas and fresh coffee. Very ‘hyggeligt‘!
