1. Mayfield Lavender

In the Surrey Downs, this magnificent, family-run lavender field is a sight to behold in the summer months. Approximately 15 miles from London, visitors can come and see this purple paradise in full bloom. Wander through the sea of organic lavender to take in its mesmerising smell, and snap some fabulous photos for the gram. We recommend heading to their nursery & gift shop afterward to take home some scented goodies. Although currently closed, the farm will be back open for the season in June and will stay open for daily visits until 31st August.

4. Cotswold Farm Park

From mid-August - when the sunflowers are in full bloom - Cotswold Farm Park typically opens up their flourishing sunflower field to the public. On top of that, sunflowers aren’t the only flowers on show. Visitors can enjoy a variety of flourishing flora, from calming cornflowers to vibrant red campion. Since this farm is a little further away from London than the others, we recommend driving there (but trust us, it’s so worth it!)

5. Blooming Green

To see a stunning array of seasonal flowers, Blooming Green in Kent is the place to visit. Run by two cousins who are passionate about floristry, the Green’s main attraction is the vibrant flower plot that is open currently for PYO season. On Saturdays until October, visitors can book a special session where they can pick their own pretty flowers to keep - we recommend you book a slot between 10 am and midday if you want the ‘pick of the bunch’. And, if all that flower picking has you feeling peckish you can pop by their café for some refreshments and take a seat on the picnic benches.
