Enfield Garden Centre lies in Crews Hill, North London, in an area renowned for its rich horticultural heritage. Whilst plants and gardening remain at the heart of the business, Enfield also offers customers a wonderful day out, with a newly opened garden restaurant, a great gift shop, a fish shop and a furniture shop, as well as a soft play area for the kids, which is open any time the restaurant is open.
