People Are Rushing To This Lavender Farm To Take Instagram Photos

Until the end of August, Mayfield Lavender Farm is open to the public seven days a week.

Right now the world is battling a global pandemic. A lot of places have started to reopen and try to carve out a new form of normal and part of that new “normal” is the encouragement of staycations where people really only travel within the borders of their own country. While that might seem unfair to everyone that had exotic destinations booked for this year, it does mean that those people living in the UK can access the perfect Instagram backdrop.

On a lavender farm just south of the city of London, people can go and take ‘Gram-worthy pictures with some pretty stunning views. Mayfield Lavender, the 25-acre lavender farm located in Banstead, Surrey, is open to the public. And it’s only 15 miles from central London. So, even if you can’t get to white-sand beaches as planned, if you’re living in England you can still have a great picture-perfect adventure.

Mayfield Lavender even wrote on their website, “you can wander through a sea of beautiful organic lavender.” The best part is right now is the perfect time for lavender, so if you’re really wanting the perfect new profile picture now’s your chance to plan a road trip. And getting in touch with your inner influencer is highly encouraged by the farm as well. They are always actively encouraging non-commercial photoshoots on their premises. They’ve even been known to host an annual competition for visitors that has a £200 prize – but they do stress it’s just for fun and don’t want you to get too competitive.

Besides being a great hub for outdoor photos, the farm also has an onsite cafe that has an array of freshly prepared sandwiches, cakes, ice creams and hot and cold drinks – including a lavender cider – which you can take to go or enjoy there. Personally, the sound of enjoying some food in a lavender field sounds like heaven.

There is also a gift shop on the farm where you can purchase your own lavender plant, or products, such as toiletries and food items, that are made from the soothing plant. Until the end of August, Mayfield Lavender Farm is open to the public seven days a week. And it only costs £4 a person to enter.
