If you live near London or are planning to visit the British capital and would like to experience something a bit different, then you should keep reading.
About 40 minutes from Central London you can find yourselves immersed in nature in a lavender field. It’s basically like being in Provence.
Watch this video to have a look at the field and what it has to offer. But make sure you read until the end for more information on how to get there!
A half-day trip to a lavender field
Mayfield Lavender Farm is a private field, but the owners open it to visitors during summer. This is indeed the season to visit, as the plant flourishes between June and September.
Mayfield lavender is the perfect place to spend half a day in. You can take stunning pictures! And if you have children they will have a lot of fun walking around the camp.
What to buy
There is also a shop selling all sorts of lavender products – from food to soaps to lavender itself. Watch the video on top to get a better idea of the field and have a look at the products I’ve bought! (since I’ve now eaten almost everything, I can say they were delicious!)
How to get to Mayfield Lavender Farm
To reach Mayfield Lavender Farm from London you have to take a train from London Victoria to Purley. From there, you need to take the bus 166 (stop G) until you reach the field. The entire journey lasts around 45 minutes.
You can look for more information on the farm’s official website.
