The Palm Centre is a 4 acre nursery which includes several large glasshouses and outdoor display areas, situated in the old kitchen gardens of Ham House, right by the River Thames in Richmond.
We encourage visitors to come and browse and select plants in person. We are a beautiful 35 minute river walk from Richmond, or 40 minutes from Kingston. Or take the 65 or 371 bus from Richmond or Kingston, about 20 minutes in each case.
Alternatively we have plenty of onsite parking, and are close to the M4, M3 and North/South Circular Roads. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be pleased to advise you, wrap and pack your purchases and help you load your car. See below for directions and contact details.
