London has full of unexpected surprises waiting for us to discover and explore (outside fashion), the Pergola and The Hill Garden in Hampstead is one of my favourite finds and I often return to the garden to grab some photos or to coincide with a story/feature for my potential blog post.  I stumbled across Clifton Nurseries on the web last autumn, well, on Editer.com actually.  It has taken me 10 long months of patience, and I’ve finally dragged myself out to visit this delightful gem in Little Venice, was well worth a trip if you love discovering secret spots.  The nurseries houses large range of interesting plants and flowers, lemon trees, olive trees, they even have grape vines draped all over the pergola, as well as offering garden design and maintenance services for your gardening needs.  A spot of afternoon tea and scrumptious cakes at The Quince Tree cafe inside a palm house, I personally recommend their Cherry and Pistachio cake, it was delicious. After spending a good hour of snapping away and admiring the nurseries, I didn’t leave the place empty handed, I bought a pot of baby cacti and a packet sweet pea seeds ready to sow in October.

    I love reading all your discoveries on parks and gardens, and all the beautiful photography which makes London look so desirable to live in no matter where you are, there are undiscovered secrets. I still love the Pergola garden post.

    After reading your Barbican post, I went to visit there last Sunday, I didn’t expect the conservatory to be that huge! So I’d like to say thank you for sharing your finds. This, I will pay a visit when I’m in town next.

    These pictures are absolutely gorgeous! I’ve never come across a cafe/nursery in Australia, but it seems like such a brilliant idea.
