It has all the makings of a popular destination for discerning visitors to the historic old town, especially those to Hatfield House, which is just up the road from the shop door.

Bradhams Fantastic Flowers is owned by Theresa Bradstreet, who trained in London in all aspects of floristry at both the world-famous McQueens Flower School and under the expert tuition of Judith Blacklock at her internationally renowned flower school in Knightsbridge.
