It may be known for its sleepy scent and soothing properties, but there’s nothing dozy about the explosion of colour – an astonishing crop of mauves and indigos – happening right now in London’s lavender fields.
Lavender season typically runs from May to September, peaking some time near the end of August. For those wanting to lay their eyes and nose on this year’s epic bloom, London and the surrounding area boast a sweet selection of sweeping lavender fields. From Kew Gardens to Kennington Park, the purple stuff is everywhere. And with views like the ones we’ve rounded up below, it’d be rude not to take advantage!
To help keep visitors and staff safe in 2020, many lavender fields are asking people to book in advance. And some usual services and activities have be cancelled. Please check each venue’s website before you visit.
