As you all know, I am the TMK London contingent. I love living in Tooting, and I still love being a tourist in my city, and exploring with the children. London does have so much to offer, and often the lesser known tourist attractions are some of the best gems. I thought I would start a mini series on the blog to explore some of these little treasures that we have found in and around London.Today, I introduce you to the Mayfield Lavender Farm.
While one losing selection in Patent will ruin your big payout from the Treble, with the right odds in place you can still have the insurance of some profit coming back off the other two winning selections. The Stan James brand has been at the forefront of Sports Betting over the last decade. In this example, the offer was worth roughly £8 each day https://betzoid.com/best-football-betting-apps/. The customer service offered on the platform has also been lauded for effectivity and their availability.
Now, I know what you are going to say, they are not in London! Indeed, they are just over the border into North Surrey. However, as it takes just 20 minutes from my house in South London, it is easily accessible from south London, and well worth the visit. Alternatively, you can catch the train from central London to Purley which falls in zone 6. Then hop on the 166 bus to the farm. At only a pound entrance, and the kids are free, it’s a cheap afternoon out.
The place is just stunning: Rows of fragrant, organic lavender growing abundantly. It’s certainly a change from the densely built up areas of the city of London. It’s hard to believe you are not in Provence, as the sun shines down on the lavender.
There’s tractor rides to amuse the kids, and a refreshments shop for drinks and food, and of course a shop to purchase a range of goods made with the lavender. But actually, all you really want to do is stroll up and down, it’s amazingly peaceful, and the children love running up and down the rows watching the bees at work and trying to catch the beetles (there’s a sweet reward for catching the lavender-eating beetle!).
Obviously, this is seasonal and the lavender blooms in July and August. But it is absolutely worth the visit, it feels like a quintessential English summer day trip!
