In 1998 Partridges second shop opened on Gloucester Road, West London and in 2004 the original shop was relocated to Duke of York Square, Chelsea with outdoor seating on the Square.
In 2012 Partridges introduced its Chelsea Flower Collection which contains a range of upmarket groceries including floral teas, fudge, biscuits, a selection of gifts and 2 types of gin.
Teas & Chelsea Flower Gin - Tea and gin are the perfect combination as the floral or citrus botanical flavours found in tea compliment gin. Tea has been used by bartenders to lengthen drinks since the 1800’s.
No. 2 Chelsea Flower Gin, is infused with Bergamot, which is a fragrant citrus fruit with a sweet, floral, sour and bitter flavour, found in Earl Grey tea. It tastes delicious with Partridges Earl Grey Tea with its bergamot overtones, whilst more floral teas such as Partridges Chelsea Flower Tea and Partridges Rose Pouchong Tea combine better with the floral notes of the Original Chelsea Flower Gin.
In 2014 Partridges launched Startisans to help ‘Start-Up Food & Drink’ artisans and operates pop-up Shepherd’s Markets around London including the vibrant and successful Saturday Fine Food Market each weekend outside its flagship store on Duke of York Square.

THE CHELSEA FLOWER STORY
The Chelsea Flower range has been inspired by the historic association between flowers and nurseries and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. In 17th century, nurseries were to be found in Chelsea catering for fashionable tastes in exotic and beautiful flowers. James Colville, a leading nurseryman and florist noted for his roses, chrysanthemum, pelargoniums and rare exotics was located on the corner of Blacklands Terrace and Kings Road, directly opposite the current location of Partridges' Chelsea store. Over time, Chelsea became famous for its numerous nurseries which imported and grew wondrous plants and flowers such as azaleas, camellias and geraniums alongside fruits including oranges and pineapples.
