What we love about Kettering

Kettering has been Magnolia the Florist’s home since we opened our flagship store here back in 2009. We have loved becoming part of the local community so we'd like to share our local community recommendations.

For a sumptious facial or manicure we recommend our neighbours Total Balance, a beauty and holistic salon. Such a relaxing atmosphere, the perfect place for a massage after a full days shopping.

If it's boutique shopping you're after head across the road from us to The Yards, located in the old fire and ambulance station. Its a bit of a mini Camden with an open layout indoor market and courtyard full of independent retailers with a bar and cafe. 

Kettering has historically been a market town, and keeps up that tradition today. The hustle and bustle of the market when it is held every Friday and Saturday adds to the charm. We especially love Foodie Friday every second Friday of the month on the high street – there's always something delicious for us to try!

Newlands Shopping Centre is where you'll find all the big brand stores, there's easy car parking and an array of shops to spend an afternoon browsing. 

For weddings we always recommend Barton Hall, on Barton Road, a Grade 2 listed hotel, set in stunning grounds and views of the local countryside. It is one of our favourite venues to dress for wedding flowers in Kettering

Sharing the love from our Kettering customers

"I have been lucky enough to receive flowers from Magnolia the Florist- they never disappoint, always beautiful fresh blooms that last well. I am fortunate enough to be fairly close to the shop - so can pop in regularly to check out and purchase the offerings - everything is great value for money !”

Mary Cummings from Mary & Me Piccadilly Buildings, Sheep Street in Kettering
