Nothing says romance like a bunch of flowers, and we’re lucky enough in London Town to have a whole gamut of different florists all over the shop. So if you’re looking for a bouquet, then you’re in luck! Here’s our rundown of 10 of the best London florists:
1. Wild At Heart
Kicking off this roundup of the best London florists is Wild At Heart, a luxe spot based in Notting Hill. Billed as the ‘Turquoise Island’, it’s an institution in this neck of the woods, and has even got itself ‘listed’ status – pretty fancy right? Their store is crammed full of seasonal blooms, plants and flowerpots, and prices range from £60 to around £280. Sure, it ain’t cheap, but when you’re treating someone, money’s no option right?!
They’ve also got another branch in the venerable department store, Liberty. Called ‘Nikki Tibbles’ Wild At Heart’, it’s appeared in numerous films and TV shows – including the Oscar-nominated Cruella.
📍You’ll find Wild At Heart at 222 Westbourne Grove, London, W11 2RH and Liberty London, Great Marlborough Street, London, W1B 5AH.
🚇 Nearest stations are Notting Hill Gate and Oxford Circus.
2. Pulbrook & Gould
Another stunning luxury florist that we definitely, definitely can’t afford. But one look at their shop interior and you’ll be debating whether a week of eating beans on toast and walking to work might just be worth it, in exchange for a bunch of their blooms.
A medium-sized bouquet of white tulips from their Belgravia store costs an eye-watering £140, so we recommend just taking a photo and running away, before you make a very expensive decision. But then again, it’s nearly Valentine’s Day so… why not!
📍You’ll find Pulbrook & Gould at 42 Buckingham Palace Road, London, SW1W 0RE.
🚇 Nearest station is Victoria.
3. Scarlet & Violet
Next up on this roundup of the best London florists is Scarlet & Gould, a lovely little spot in North London which has a heck of alot of character. Their shabby-chic styled shop is the perfect place to get some interior inspo, and their floral arrangements are always changing, with fresh seasonal flowers coming in every day.
Expect blossom in Spring, foxgloves in Summer, dahlias in Autumn and hellebore in Winter, and there’s everything here from bouquets to vases. They’ve even got tote bags!
📍You’ll find Scarlet & Violet at 76 Chamberlayne Road, London, NW10 3JJ.

4. A Flower Shop
Well this one says what it does on the tin right?! Based on Chatsworth Road in Lower Clapton, they bill themselves as ‘Hackney’s local florist’, and are known for their seasonal, home-grown bouquets and affordable bunches.
Their seasonal flowers are either organically home-grown on their farm in Kent, or sourced from trusted local suppliers, so everything here is ethically sourced. They even deliver their blooms via bicycle, so if you know what you want you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your sofa!

They also do wedding bouquets, and firmly believe in ‘quality over quantity’, so you can be assured that this is a great place to head. They’re also currently doing loads of Valentine’s Day bouquets, so if you’re looking to treat your plus one then this is the place to go.
