We’re so excited that it has been confirmed that we’re able to reopen our shop on April 12th. Here’s a map to our shop Margaret Raymond Florist in case you haven’t been by to visit yet:
It’s on Hamlet Court Road, which is currently in the process of being considered as a Conservation Area – it’s quite amazing to hear more about the history of the area, and what incredible buildings once stood on this remarkable road leading up to the Hamlet Court Manor. It doesn’t look like it now, as many of the original features have been replaced by modernisation and of course some of the most important landmarks – such as the old Queen’s Hotel – are now long gone after being lost to fire, but the history of the area is embedded in the landscape and it’s such an honour to be a part of it.
Margaret Raymond Florist itself was established in 1966 and we’re very proud to be able to carry on its legacy, with a few extra soap bubbles of course! We have an amazing set of florists working with us, and we’re slowly changing the shop into a more soap- and home-focussed interiors area, encouraging visitors to stop and smell the rose-scented soaps and enjoy a chat while they’re picking up their blooms. Bean and Boy customers will be surrounded by plants and beautiful makes from local artisans too, creating a wholesale and happy space. Now that we’re able to reopen, we can start working on that vision again and we can’t wait to share it with you all.
We will be open from 9am until 5pm, Monday through to Saturday:
