Buckingham Garden Centre

We are a family run garden centre that is well known nationally as a specialist for bare rooted hedging plants and young trees. The Garden Centre always has a good selection of shrubs and plants which are not commonly found elsewhere, together with a wide range of the more commonly sought after plants. Established for over 50 years, the Garden Centre has recently been redeveloped to a high standard. Our shop contains the largest selection of seeds and bulbs for miles around, together with garden chemicals, tools, garden furniture and many other goods. Outside we stock peat-based and peat-free composts, paving, fencing, timber decking, garden buildings and greenhouses, and a large range of pots, statues and garden ornaments. Our aquatics centre has a good reputation for their excellent quality tropical, marine and cold water fish. The Gardeners' Retreat, our coffee shop/restaurant, serves fresh home cooked food and is an excellent way to round off any visit to the Garden Centre.


The Gardeners’ Retreat restaurant started in 1998 and has grown over the years, most recently to its new surroundings as part of our recent re-development. We now have 110 seats indoors in our comfortable yet stylish restaurant area and 44 seats outside for those of you who prefer your food Al Fresco!

We pride ourselves on the friendly and personal service you will receive from our front of house staff, as well as the quality of the food you will enjoy from our established and experienced catering team.

Our menu provides a wide selection of choices, all prepared freshly on site using local produce wherever possible, including meat from a local butcher. The menu offers something to suit all ages and palates, but we also have a daily specials board to tempt you with. Our selection is full of both popular and traditional dishes ranging from our delicious breakfasts to give your day a great start, to our scrumptious home baked cakes for when you fancy a treat. Whatever your choice we hope that you will agree that our menu offers great value for money in welcoming surroundings. As all our food is individually and freshly prepared for each order we are able to cater for a range of dietary requirements, so please just ask one of our team and we will be happy to assist.

Opening hours: Monday to Saturday 9:30am - 4:30pm, Sunday 10am - 4pm.
Breakfasts served until 11:30am. Lunches served 12 noon - 3pm.
