I discovered this jewel in the English countryside located 15 miles from Central London.
This is a seasonal field which is opened from mid June to September, it has 25 acres of lavender on farmland located in Banstead in Surrey.
Entrance to this aromatic delight on the nose, must see with the eyes and great value of £1 per person and under 16 year olds are free.
The field is open from 9am- 6pm daily and parking is free if you have paid the entrance fee. On busy days you can park in a local rugby carpark for a fee.
How to get there:
You can drive there by using sat nav, the postcode is SM7 3JA
You can get the train from London Victoria directly to Sutton train station and then get a black cab
You can get a 166 bus from West Croydon BusStation and Purley which stops next to the Mayfield Lavender Fields. You can use your oyster card.
You can survey the beautiful lavender, walk through the enchanted field and hear the buzz of bees!
For the kid at heart you can go on a tractor ride, this costs £2 each.
There is an al fresco cafe where you can buy treats, you can have a lavender afternoon tea, buy a menagerie of gifts and plants in the shop. Unfortunately no picnics are allowed.
You can also hire a gazebo if you wish for a special occasion!
Thoroughly recommend!! I have some other fantastic ideas around this area and places to visit, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
