Internationally prized garden centre, Petersham Nurseries is a tranquil oasis
and seedbed of inspiration.
Following on from their 10th anniversary celebrations last year, the Boglione family, owners and creators of Petersham Nurseries, have recently secured the talents of a new head chef, Damian Clisby, previously head chef at HIX Soho and Cotswold House.
Damian works alongside Culinary Director, Lucy Boyd, gardener, food writer and cook, who has worked at the Nurseries for most of the last decade. Lucy's exceptional produce knowledge, culinary background and lifelong affection for Italian flavours, combine perfectly with Damian's technical skills and shared passion for ingredient-led cooking. Together they create an evolving menu inspired by what is growing in the garden, the changing seasons, and their connection to the environment.

Petersham Nurseries is uniquely located adjacent to Richmond Park and Petersham Meadow within London’s historic Thames landscape 'Arcadia' - which runs along the Thames from Teddington to Kew. As areas of incredible beauty and sensitivity they are worthy of preservation for the enjoyment of residents and visitors alike – and importantly for future generations. Moreover as an increasing number of visitors are now enjoying the area, traffic congestion could become a problem. For these reasons guests are encouraged to explore and celebrate the location with consideration for its environmental sensitivity, by chosing to visit via a walk along the Thames or through the park, a quick trip across the river by ferry from Marble Hill Park, or following one of the cycle routes from Richmond, Kingston or Teddington. There are also extensive parking facilities nearby requiring only a small walk.
