Best Magnolia Blossoms in London

Updated: Sep 23, 2021

Symbolizing dignity, spirituality, peace and adored for their large star or tulip-shaped flowers that come in shades of pink, purple, white, and even yellow, magnolia trees are a joy to have around at springtime. Their flowering season starts in early March and could last until late summer, turning London into a sublime oasis of colourful visual joy and fresh, evocative perfumes.


Magnolia trees are diverse and boast different floral scents, all lightly fruity, from spicy verbena, sweet candy, dusty violets, or citrus-honey. The refreshing yet tranquil scent makes them a popular aromatherapy staple. If you're tired of "trying to beat the crowds" and you've had enough of seeing the same magnolia photos replicated everywhere on Instagram, here are some not-so-popular places around London where you can admire Magnolias in their sublime beauty, and dare I say, in peace. Enjoy!
