There's also an alfresco teashop. Those arriving by public transport are advised to take the 166 bus from Epsom.

In my search to find something different for a day out, I visited this lavender field, which was quite a trek for for me miles across the other side of London. 

It was all a slightly surreal occasion, as it seems to be well known to Japanese tourists, who made up most of the other people there,  along with some goths doing a photo-shoot. So, pleasantly weird, it smelled gorgeous, I bought some nice soap (and slightly odd lavender fudge) from the gift shop,  and it was a bit like a day out in the country, while still being able to use an Oyster card.

What a superb idea...fantastic not only for the "health " of Croydon but a beautiful venture to bring colour and vibrancy to the twon and to encourage local wildlife and bees in particular to thrive once again....well done Mayfield Lavender!
