Christmas at Petersham Nurseries

Petersham Nurseries

Christmas at Petersham Nurseries

Petersham Nurseries are a Hidden London gem!  Despite being in London they feel like a rural idyll with greenery growing all around the spacious greenhouses and weaving around the quirky furniture.  As well as a nursery and garden centre, Petersham is home to a restaurant and cafe run by Skye Gyngell and stopping off here, even if it’s just for a cup of tea, is a treat.

The place becomes even more special at Christmas when they hold their evenings of Candlelit Christmas Markets and Carols.  The Ripieno Choir serenade you as you waft around the tables of plant related gifts and decorations feeling a million miles away from the usual stress of christmas shopping.

There’s also mulled wine and apple juice, as well as mince pies.  Jasper Conran will be there on 8th December signing copies of his book ‘Country.
