Railway garden centre
Yes, that’s correct: flower, not power. As in, Battersea Flower Station. This stretch along the railway promises pots, plants, flowers, and magic in no particular order. In fact, it’s rather haphazard with flora and fauna spilling out of rusty wheelbarrows, placed along tables and benches, and there are little ornamental touches everywhere that make you wonder if you’re in the city at all. The gift shop makes a fine place to pick up gifts for garden lovers, too.
All flowers and plants are grown within London or the UK and the Flower Station makes a quaint day out for those who prefer to shop independently and support local ventures. They also open late on Fridays, making it a charming choice for a date before drinks.
