Due to busy lifestyles, most people don’t have time to buy and pick up flowers in-store for gifting. That’s when same- or next-day floral delivery services come in handy.
But that’s not the only problem. Oftentimes, it’s hard to come up with the perfect bespoke bouquet to give to a special someone or your parents who have supported you your whole life.
Fortunately, we’ve chosen the best shops for flower delivery in Tunbridge Wells here for you. We also listed their rates to help you decide which company from our list to pick later on.
Without any further ado, let’s start!
The Average Cost of Flower Delivery in Tunbridge Wells
In Tunbridge Wells, flower delivery rates differ widely and can cost anywhere between £7 and £900. This will depend on the floral design and size that you choose when you shop online.
In this price range, we also factored in wedding flower subscriptions and corporate packages. These are quite expensive but they will give you value if you plan on getting fresh flowers often.
Furthermore, delivery rates usually start at £6.99 but can be free with some florists. Deliveries outside the local area will cost higher and more so across the UK and internationally.
Now, here’s a price table of some of the leading flower boutiques in the town. You can use this to decide which florist to check out first online to order from.
|Flower Delivery Shop||Flower Rates||Delivery Charge|
|Mrs Florist Tunbridge Wells||£20 – £499||£6.99|
|Colonnade Florist||£7.95 – £900||From £7.99|

If you’re looking for affordable bouquets, we highly recommend Mrs Florist Tunbridge Wells!
From their lovely variety of bouquets and arrangements, you can get something from as low as £20 and to several hundred pounds if you don’t mind splashing out a bit.
Whether you need a custom bunch for a wedding, an extravagant one for a concert, or dandy and modern blooms to say ‘I care about you’, the florist can accommodate your needs and budget.
They source all their fresh and dazzling blooms from the Netherlands. You can therefore always find something special in their floral selection.
We like their Vivacious Vase, which is filled with cheery and splendid colours of roses, Eustomas, and gerberas. Or for a more balanced floral gift, you can go for their Sophistation arrangement with elegant calla lilies and pink cymbidium orchids.
The florist also offers a selection of gifts including eco-friendly scented candles, chocolates, plush animals, gluggle fish jugs, vases, and gift sets.
You can qualify for same-day delivery by ordering from Monday to Saturday before 2.00 PM and on Sunday before mid-day. Partnered with Interflora, the florist can arrange a next-day flower delivery for you throughout the UK as well.
As you can see, they easily belong as one of the best flower delivery shops in Tunbridge Wells. They accept American Express credit cards and PayPal payments.

Mrs Florist bagged a 4.8/5 star score on Google. People found their service fantastic and online shop system easy-to-use even if they ordered flower arrangements from abroad.
One buyer named Catherine wrote this review of them:
“I just wanted to thank you for delivering the great bouquet of flowers which I ordered for my husband. They arrived before noon yesterday – as I requested – and he was absolutely delighted with them.”
What’s more, Michaela said this:
“Couldn’t recommend Mrs Florist enough I live all the way up in Carlisle and sadly our dear friend passed away down south. I ordered some flowers to be delivered by Mrs Florist and I stupidly got the dates incorrect for our friends funeral. Ashleigh was absolutely phenomenal and not only calmed me down but pulled out all the stops to make sure my flowers arrived just 24 hours after my order. Ashleigh, thank you so much. I couldn’t thank you enough.”
2) Colonnade Florist
|PRODUCTS||Flowers and Gifts|
In the dog house
Vases, baskets & arrangements
A little something extra
|DELIVERY FEE||From £7.99|

|CONTACT DETAILS||01 8925 49919 |
|ADDRESS||Pantiles Chambers, 85 High St, Tunbridge Wells TN1 1XP, United Kingdom|
Colonnade Florist is a respected florist based in High Street, Royal Tunbridge Wells. The boutique is all about passion and run by two talented floral designers—Sharon and Charlie.
They can handcraft striking flower combinations whether you want a single-variety or assorted result. Their floristry is simple, natural, and creative making them a perfect florist for all occasions.
These include summer holidays, baby showers, romantic dates, luxury yacht parties, corporate events, and weddings. Weddings are their speciality and they make it all from simple buttonholes to fairy-tale garden arches.
You can readily see that their online shop is very neat and organised. And at checkout, you can freely choose the flower size as well as add plantable gift cards, chocolates, candles, or balloons.
If you’re wondering what a plantable gift card is, it’s just as the name suggests. Since the gift card contains seed, it can sprout wildflowers if you plant it under your garden bed—pretty cool, huh?
That said, compared to our previous pick, their flowers cost a bit higher and so do their delivery fees. They also hand-deliver arrangements around Tunbridge Wells and nearby areas from Monday to Saturday only.
However, if you’re sending magnificent blooms somewhere in the UK, they can have the courier deliver your gift to your recipient. For same-day delivery, you should place your order before 10.00 AM the day before.
For their payment options, the florist accepts Mastercard, Visa, and PayPal. Unfortunately, they don’t take American Express cards at the moment.
Colonnade Florist won the Wedding Industry Award and the Muddy Stilletos Award in 2020 and 2017 respectively. Indeed, they offer some of the best flower delivery services in Tunbridge Wells!
- Award-winning floral designer
- Same-day flower delivery available
- Accepts PayPal, Mastercard, and Visa

Lovely flowers, spot-on deliveries, and wonderful service are the things you’ll hear from most buyers. The florist earned a score of 4.9/5 stars on Google.
Here’s Joe’s feedback of the florist:

3) Kelly & Hicks

|ADDRESS||43 Dorking Road, Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN1 2LN, UK|
For dream weddings, another of the best flower delivery shops in Tunbridge Wells is Kelly & Hicks. The florist, Kelly, is known for her versatile and detail-oriented floral arrangement style.
Kelly had a different career back then but followed her heart and took floristry courses. She had shown promise and became the only student to be awarded the City and Guilds Medal for Excellence in 2012.
She specialises in wedding flowers mainly, but she can also do sympathy and everyday florals. Though she doesn’t have an online store, you can leave her a message on the Contact Us page.
At this shop, flowers sell for truly affordable prices. That’s because Kelly operates from her studio in Dorking Road—which isn’t a shopfront—allowing her to pass her overhead savings to you.
What’s more, it’s not her way to pay venue owners to recommend her services. Thus, you get even more savings and can concentrate on making your big day special for yourself and your guests.
Because you have to get in touch with Kelly by phone to create bespoke florals, flowers are bound to be delivered in a little more time. But this should be fine if you order a day or two in advance.
Also, if you want, the florist can supply various props for your wedding or special event such as glassware, candelabra, bay trees, among other things, which is very convenient.
- City & Guilds Medal for Excellence winner
- Specialises in wedding and sympathy events
- No overheads in its prices
- No online store
- Flowers could take longer to arrive
Kelly & Hicks collected perfect scores on both Google and Facebook. Lots of clients were made happy due to the care and effort Clare took to ensure their florals were stunning and bespoke.
One client, Carly, who was recently married shared this review on Facebook:
“What can I say?! Our flowers were absolutely out of this world!!! I changed my mind re colours around 4 months before the wedding but it was absolutely no trouble for Clare. Not only did the flowers look stunning they smelt incredible. Something I find you don’t always notice. The display in the bike basket was such a statement piece I adored it so much. If you’re not sure what you want just put your trust in Clare and she will not dissapoint. Such a talented, lovely lady. My flowers lasted for two weeks after the big day so we enjoyed them at home too I’m going to give my now husband Clares number so he can think a puy flowers for the first wedding anniversary Clare thank you so so much x.”
Moreover, Kim wrote this feedback of the florist:
“I ordered a wreath for my Auntie and it was lovely, a beautiful arrangement with a mixture of colours.
My family also used Clare Kelly and were very pleased.
I will definitely use Clare again as the service was excellent, reasonable and exceeded expectations.”
4) The Bloom Foundry Ltd

On the hunt for colour-infused and vintage arrangements? If you are, you can check out The Bloom Foundry Ltd.
It’s a quaint flower and antique business nestled at 55 St John’s Road. Their selections are comprised of fresh, dried, silk, and faux flowers that can make a terrific gift for your friends or parents.
As much as possible, they don’t ship their arrangements in coated boxes, plastic bags, and aqua packs to reduce their plastic use. You can opt for their regular terracotta or recycled vase for your flowers.
Besides that, they have a variety of fresh and artificial house plants to enhance the decor of your house. As well as gifts like kokeshi dolls, a flamingo display, a Chinese wall fan, and more.
The delivery charge is waived if you’re sending a bunch within a 10-mile radius of their flower store. On top of that, you can arrange for them to ship out your order on the same or the next day.
As for their drawbacks, they have fewer product offerings relative to other shops and don’t have any plant products uploaded online. You can, however, call the florist to enquire or also browse its FB store page.
If you want bespoke flowers for your beloved or friend, they can create for you if you let them know. Also, they can make luxurious arrangements (their forte) and we think these look a great deal better than the ones shown on their digital store evident in their clients’ pictures.
- Same-day and free delivery available
- Reduces their use of plastic as much as possible
- Accepts Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, and PayPal
- Fewer product offerings
