Game of Thrones and Harry Potter may be over, but we’re still obsessed with the magic. If you are too, we’ve found a secret London spot that will continue to spellbind. Enter the Hollyhock Cafe. Not only does the Richmond-based snug have the cutest name but Walt Disney surely must’ve cast eyes over it before writing Snow White and the Seven Dwarves? It looks like somewhere Hagrid would snap up and oozes total fairytale vibes.

The chocolate box-esque cafe is surely one of London’s most magical. Located in the Terrace Gardens, which can be accessed from Richmond Riverside, it fits the phrase “oh, we just stumbled across it,” perfectly.

The delightful little spot uses fair trade and organic product which we can’t say we’re surprised about at the cafe that can do no wrong! In winter, you can expect blankets thrown over you whilst you sit on wonky wicker, gazing across the greenery afore you.

Awash with fairy lights, it’s a perfect pit-stop to grab a delicious cake and a cuppa before continuing your adventures through the spellbinding Richmond Park. Nothing sums this spot up better than ‘a place to take mum,’ – thank us later!

Stumble across Hollyhock Cafe at Terrace Gardens, Petersham Road, Richmond, TW10 6UX. If you’re a sucker for a secret venue, find more here
