About Upminster Garden Centre

Upminster Garden Centre has been providing the local area with garden-based services since the early 40s and we are proud to continue that tradition having joined the family-owned British Garden Centre Group in 2019.

We have an emphasis on plants at Upminster, with a high-quality, good value range along with our gardening products. Our plants are uniquely displayed, as you can look down over the plant area, similar to an amphitheatre. Our indoor space stocks our extensive range of gifts, homeware and furniture. The centre provides everything for your garden and more, it’s the best choice for your gardening needs.

Our delightful Coffee Haven Restaurant is a great place to relax, before, after and whilst shopping in the garden centre. Serving a delicious range of main meals, snacks, and tasty treats. We also have a wonderful selection of cakes and homemade scones. Just like our centre, the restaurant is dog friendly.

How to find us? We are located on Nags Head Lane, if you put RM14 1TS into your Sat Nav or GPS it will bring you straight to us.
