There are a few things that are a constant in my yearly calendar, and visiting lavender fields is one of them.
As is typical with English summers, we went on a blisteringly hot but cloudy day.

So unfortunately the pictures are all a little flat in terms of photography but I still enjoyed the day none the less so I’m sharing them.
And I think it can make a great family day out which is another reason to share.
The Hitchin lavender fields do charge if you want to visit the thick abundant rows of lavender; which can be seen all over Instagram in the summer months, but the fee is nominal especially when you realise you can cut the lavender yourself and fill brown paper bags with it to bring home.

In the late summer there’s the possibility of getting pictures with sunflowers and wild flowers as well, which would certainly be a magical time to visit.
If it’s nearby, or you’ve been desperate to visit some lavender fields I’d certainly recommend going.
It’s a half day trip really, something to enjoy for a few hours and perhaps spend a bit of time relaxing in the cafe area they have on site while taking advantage of the outdoor play area to enjoy a hot coffee or two!
There’s certainly a bit more here for children compared to the Mayfield lavender fields but in all honesty I generally go for the flowers and most toddlers are happy to just have the freedom to run. Just beware of the bees!
