Set up in 2006 to help revive the historic lavender industry in the area, which boomed during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Mayfield Lavender is a 25-acre organic lavender field on an original Victorian site situated on the North Surrey Downs. Two varieties of English lavender are grown on the chalky soil; flowers are harvested and distilled to produce lavender oil. Visitors are welcome to wander the field and enjoy its scent. There's also an alfresco teashop. Those arriving by public transport are advised to take the 166 bus from Epsom.
