A classy shop opposite the Freemasons Hall, where seasonal flowers are carefully chosen to appeal to all the senses. Stephen Wicks and Mark Welford, who call themselves the Bloomsbury Boys, create dramatic and unusual arrangements that are made up while you wait. A long way from your standard bouquet, the designs may involve scented herbs and shiny evergreens. Good-quality standards like orchids, lilies, roses, peonies and summer sweet peas stand alongside more unusual choices such as bergamot and rosemary, part of an imaginative range that changes throughout the year. Day and evening flower design courses are on offer – see their website for details (www.bloomsburyflowers.co.uk).
