Nature-inspired “Serene House” pop-up opens in central London
November 2 @ 10:00 am – November 3 @ 6:00 pm
Plant-filled paradise offers natural respite for busy city-goers
A new experiential pop-up, promising a plant-packed, nature-filled detox experience, is set to open in Potters Fields Park, Southwark, on Thursday 2 and Friday 3 November.
The Serene House, which is free to the general public, offers a glorious celebration of all things green and gives guests the chance to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy a moment of relaxation in nature. Visitors are invited to try out two of the hottest natural wellbeing trends: earthing and forest bathing – both promising a 10-minute escape from the city – in the very heart of it.
Developed in partnership with The Joy of Plants and Funny How Flowers Do That, the two-day pop-up, open from 10.00am to 6.00pm, 2-3 November, provides a natural respite for busy urban dwellers and visitors to the city.
The specially adapted greenhouse has been designed by Chelsea Flower Show winner Ian Drummond, who has selected a range of houseplants and fresh-cut flowers renowned for their wellbeing and mood-boosting properties. Giving guests a welcome boost as we move into the darker days of winter.
Inside, the Serene House is a cornucopia of different flora with several varieties on show. What’s more, the experiential is part of a “nature takeover” of London – a project that is being mirrored in several European cities – which aims to address new research revealing that the average Brit spends just 32 minutes in nature per day, despite 63 per cent stating they think it is important to spend time in nature to boost your mental health.
For those interested in attending, simply head on down to Potters Fields Park on Thursday 2 or Friday, where The Joy of Plants and Funny How Flowers Do That teams will be on hand to guide you through the experience.
