A Trip to the Lavender Fields

Thursday, 11 August 2016








One of the things I love about where I live, is that in one direction, I'm half an hour away from central London, and in the other direction, I'm 30 minutes away from the countryside and I definitely made the most of the latter a few weekends ago. The weather was so lovely and for a change, I wasn't in central London for the weekend, so my boyfriend and I decided to take a trip to the nearby Lavender Fields. I'd seen picturesque photos of these fields all over my social media for the past couple of years, but I'd never realised how close they were. When we arrived, it was super busy and swarming with tourists, but we still managed to find a parking space and take in the beautiful fields. We were really lucky with the weather too and it's the perfect place to get some gorgeous photos - a bloggers dream! It was so lovely wondering through the fields with the smell of lavender in the air, even if there were bees everywhere! After taking a plentiful amount of photos we popped to the cafe for some lunch (which did take forever to queue for!) We both opted for a burger from the BBQ which was well worth the wait, before returning back to the car. If you're ever near the Banstead / Purley area I definitely recommend taking a trip to the Lavender Fields, it's £1 entry and the views are so worth it, what's not to enjoy!

  1. £1 entry is sooo great! What a beautiful place to spend a nice sunny day ^_^
    And I can imagine living on the outskirts of London is brilliant! I live about a 50 minute train ride from London, so not too far if I ever want to do some serious shopping haha

  2. I know, I couldn't believe it when I found out it was only £1, nothing is ever that cheap! Ahh that's good I could never imagine living too far from London, I'd miss the shopping too much!
