Norfolk Lavender

Ideal “purple” day out: taste, smell, admire. Lavender dream!

What to do:

  • Visit lavender fields (or better to say seedbeds), you’ll see different sorts of Lavender and will be able to buy favourite ones in the shop.
  • To see real big fields, where they grow lavender for selling all around the world, you need to book a tour on the site.
  • Taste different food with lavender (we bought cakes and tea) in their local cafe. We also purchased lavender flowers and now we make a similar tea at home, it is delicious.
  • Also you can visit small farm (£2 ticket). But its fence is very low so we just looked at ducks, donkeys and llamas from outside.
  • Besides the farm there is a garden. It is very quite, but there is no lavender at all.
  • Visiting these fields will not take longer than 3 hours (including coffee break). You can walk half an hour to Heacham – small quite town with beach in the North Sea coast.
  • If you came to the fields through King’s Lynn, then you can stay there for a while and look at the “painted windows”.

How to get there:

  • Trains from London King’s Cross to King’s Lynn (return tickets from £35, 1h 40 mins journey), then catch a bus to Norfolk Lavender Trading on King’s Lynn Bus station.

Useful tips:

  • I recommend to buy dry lavender flowers: it is happiness, nice taste and smell for a long time.
