Okay when you are in London, you really do not want to leave this fabulous city but the short ride to Petersham Nurseries is definitely worth it. You can take a train or taxi to get to Richmond. When you go by train, you still need to walk a little to get to this 1 Michelin star restaurant situated inside an extraordinary and beautiful garden centre. This garden centre sells exclusive garden tools, very beautiful home accessories and furniture and of course plants. In between all of this, while sitting on simple chairs (not what you would expect from a 1 star Michelin restaurant but therefore even more special) you will be treated to an ultimate lunch (no dinner). The lobster salad with an orange vinaigrette and the pasta with truffle were unforgettable. Truly a must visit!
