The best florists and flower shops in London


Shopping Home decor Old Street

For glamorous flowers, this is the place to call. Well regarded for showstopping event and wedding floristry (as well as for its adjoining school), McQueens is perfect for a polished, smart bouquet for your discerning loved one.

Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart

Shopping Home decor Notting Hill

Ever wandered past the front of Liberty and admired the farmhouse-chic bouquets outside? They’re the work of Wild at Heart. Set up by Nikki Tibbles some 20 years ago, the original Westbourne Grove florist is a long-running local favourite, spreading the floral love with a second branch on Pimlico Road.

If roses make you squirm, try their characterful counterpart: the orchid. Orchidya is the only florist in the UK dedicated to the exotic blooms, but that doesn’t mean that it’s been racking up the air miles, as most of its stock is grown in England. If you can't afford a grand bouquet, plump for a single potted plant in a striking colour.

Philippa Craddock at Selfridges

Self-taught florist Philippa Craddock, who has the V&A on her client list, has built a little oasis of calm in the the chaos that is Selfridges on Oxford Street. You can expect to find pretty bouquets seven days a week, with fresh hand ties made each morning. She’s the famous department store’s only in-store florist. Find her, and her ace arrangements, in the food hall, as well as in her two studios in London and Sussex.

Rebel Rebel

Surely one of the glossiest florists in the capital, this east London outfit has styled flowers for the great and good of the fashion industry and has a client list that includes Stella McCartney and photographer Miles Aldridge. Inventive and incredibly eye-catching, Rebel Rebel’s bunches come packed with a punch.

Scarlet & Violet

Shopping Home decor Kensal Rise

Kensal Rise locals would probably rather this deliciously pretty florist was a secret. Alas, Kate Moss ordered her wedding flowers here, effectively letting the cat out of the bag. Despite its newfound fame, it remains an ideal stop if you’re after natural-looking arrangements in vintage pots.

That Flower Shop

That Flower Shop

Its bouquets are named after rom-coms – ‘Never Been Kissed’, anyone? – and its plant pots come with puns; so this is the florist for you if you like your flowers with a side of funny. Using seasonal flowers, That Flower Shop creates beautifully unruly, sprawling bouquets.
