Wandering down the beautiful Victorian-styled atrium of The Tannery you can’t possibly fail to notice Mrs Bottomley’s flowers. As soon as you set foot inside this special shop, a sense of calm and peace enters your soul. Fresh flowers, beautiful bouquets and whimsical arrangements are perched on antique tables, sitting in an eclectic mix of vases. Up high, masses of dried bunches hang from the wooden rafters. In the centre of it all a huge custom-built workbench provides space for the team of skilful florists to produce their creations, a wonderful sight to behold.

Everything at Mrs Bottomley’s is inspired by nature. The offerings vary depending on the season and many of the details that go into the arrangements are foraged. No imported flowers are used here, everything is sourced locally whenever possible. Floral creations from Mrs Bottomley’s flowers are never contrived; they are natural and soulful, as if one had wandered through a magnificent garden and picked just the right elements for the perfect bunch.

Mrs Bottomley’s is named in honour of shop owner Lizzie’s grandmother and she runs it together with her daughter Hannah. The shop is quirky, fun and inspiring, just like the ladies behind its conception.

As well as supplying Cantabrians with their everyday flowers, Mrs Bottomley’s can cater for any of your floral needs. From unique wedding arrangements to dried installations, Mrs Bottomley’s will add a touch of whim and beauty to every occasion.
