They say in Thailand, 'if you're so naive, you shoud go live in a lavender field.' 😜 So let's go! If you're staying near London, there are lots of options to choose from. Here's our top 6:

1. Mayfield 🌿


It’s massive and it only costs £1 per person to visit. There’s a café, small shop and a telephone box which seems a popular thing to have a photo with.

Price: £1 Size: 100,000sqm Travel time from Waterloo: 1h 20m (Purley Station + 166 bus)

2. Lavender Gardens, Vauxhall Park 🌿


Fairly standard London park with a decent sized lavender garden with outdoor chess tables. There’s also a little café where you can grab some refreshments or hire chess pieces.

Price: FREE Size: 600sqm Travel Time from Waterloo: 10m (Vauxhall Station)

3. Kennington Park 🌿


Large South London Park with a picturesque flower garden including patches of lavender. Also has a café, and is home to Bee Urban, an ecological social enterprise which runs volunteering sessions and workshops.

Price: FREE Travel Time from Waterloo: 15m (Kennington Tube Station)

4. Kentish Lavender 🌿


Biggest lavender field in the UK. Can only visit shop (or pre-book guided tour for £6 per person, minimum of 15 people in July)

Price: £6 Size: 385,000sqm Travel Time from Waterloo: 1h 30m

5. Kew Gardens 🌿


Large botanical gardens in South-West London. Much more than just lavender to see there if you’re interested in plants, but it is pretty expensive these days. Used to be free 😞

Price: £14 Travel Time from Waterloo: 35m (North Sheen Station)

6. Hitchin Lavender 🌿


A bit far away, but can watch films outdoors, visit the farm shop and also see the sunflower fields.

Price: £6 Size: 80,000sqm (only parts are lavender) Travel Time from King’s Cross: 1h 20m (Hitchin Station + 72 bus)
