Beautiful Sunflower Fields in and Around London 

Garsons Farm

Surrey

Garsons Farm is an all-rounder. 

It’s easily one of the most popular farms in the region, and for good reason – there’s so much variety. Rows of sunflowers? Tick. Fruit picking? Tick. Pumpkins in Autumn? Massive tick.

The actual farm resembles something of a mini theme park, with huge blocks dedicated to over 20 different kinds of fruit, veg, and flowers. You actually need a map so you don’t get lost.

Once you’ve taken a thousand photos of the sunflowers, there’s also a charming farm shop and restaurant serving up delicious local fare.

Opening times: Monday – Saturday 9am-5pm, Sunday 10am-5pm

Price: Book your farm pass for £4 here

Address: Winterdown Rd, Esher KT10 8LS

Hitchin Lavender

Hertfordshire

Don’t be fooled by the name, Hitchin Lavender is home to acres of pretty sunflowers that you won’t be able to resist getting your mitts on.

While you’re there though, it would be rude not to check out the lavender that makes Hitchin so, so famous. Rows and rows of purple just waiting to be explored.

They’ve also got a brilliant farm shop, selling everything from lavender-infused gin to body lotions and essential oils – a perfect souvenir for your sunflower picking trip.

Opening times: Weekdays and weekends 9am-8pm

Price: Book a slot in advance here, tickets cost £7 for general admission

Address: Cadwell Farm, Arlesey Rd, Ickleford, Hitchin SG5 3UA

The Patch MK

Milton Keynes

If it’s a great photo you’re after, look no further than The Patch MK. This is a family-run farm that goes the extra mile to ensure everyone has an exciting experience picking sunflowers.

Located just to the north of the capital, the rows of sunflowers here allow you to get fully submerged in all that yellowy goodness. They also run tractor rides around the patch, which is downright adorable.

Opening times: Friday and Saturday until 8pm, Sundays until 4:30pm

Price: Sunflowers are £1.50 each, or 5 for £5

Address: Mount Mill Farm, Milton Keynes MK19 6DG

Cotswold Farm Park

Gloucester

Ok, so Cotswold Farm Park is located a little bit further from the capital, BUT it’s worth making the drive… promise.

This is the BBC’s very own Adam Henson’s farm (yes, the one from Countryfile), and while you can pick up some sunflowers here, it’s basically an amusement park for animal enthusiasts.

If you’ve got kids, this is a must-do. Pony rides, animal petting opportunities, and plenty of outdoor play areas will keep the kids busy while you grab a coffee from Dolly’s cafe. 

Opening times: Weekdays and weekends 9am-5pm

Price: The sunflower fields are free for those who are entering the farm park

Address: Guiting Power, Cheltenham GL54 5FL

Meopham PYO

Kent

Family-run farm, Meopham PYO, is another brilliant place to find sunflowers near London.

The farm is also home to White Finch Tea Room, which serves up tea and coffee, homemade cakes, light lunches and a seriously good afternoon tea.

PYO season runs until the end of October, but it’s worth getting in contact in advance to ensure they’ve got plenty of flowers available. 

The best part? You can take your furry friend along for walkies amongst the sunflowers – prepare to snap the cutest pics. 

Opening times: Open weekends 10am-4pm

Price: Just turn up and pay for what you pick

Address: Ifield Rd, Meopham, Gravesend DA13 0QH

Glebe Farm 

Banbury

Head over Oxford way to Glebe Farm in Banbury, a family-run farm in a small local village. Dedicated to sunflowers, this farm has got you more than covered.

Glebe Farm is also opposite The George Pub, a cosy spot where you can settle for a pint afterwards, or take a coffee away to sip as you pick sunflowers.

There’s plenty of benches on-site too, so why not bring a picnic along and make a day of it?

Opening times: Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday until 8pm

Price: Tickets are £7 per car and include 6 stems and parking

Address: Butchers Ln, Lower Brailes, Banbury OX15 5NB

Kent

At just £1 per stem, this is a great place to head to in August and September if you just want to pick some sunflowers to brighten up your home. 

Opening times: Monday to Saturday 9:30am-5pm, Sunday 10am-4pm

Blooming Green 

Kent

After something a little more special? Blooming Green in Kent is a florist set on Loddington Farm, offering bespoke PYO slots for an abundance of flowers including sunflowers.

Probably not one for the whole family to get involved with, but a great option for dates or if you just want something a little bit therapeutic. If you’re getting married, you can even pick your own wedding flowers days before the wedding.

For just £4 per person, you can book on for tea and cake after your PYO slot, turning it into a really lovely experience.

Opening times: PYO available on Saturdays

Price: You’ll need to book an appointment, it’s £20 for a bucket of flowers

Address: Loddington Farm, Linton, Maidstone ME17 4AG

Writtle Sunflowers

Chelmsford

Looking like something out of an indie film, Writtle Sunflowers is a popular PYO farm in Essex that’s popular with families and local photographers alike.

This year, the farm’s sunflower field has exploded in size and they’ve moved to a bigger location, meaning you’ve got plenty of flowers to choose between. 

There’s also a small maze for the kids to get stuck into, as well as other flowers available (although, their sunflowers are by far the biggest and best offering).

Opening times: 10am-5pm, closed Mondays and Fridays

Price: No need to book, just turn up and pay for what you pick

Address: Pooty Pools Farm, Chelmsford CM1 4NW

Rogate Farm

Petersfield

The Real Flower Petal Confetti Co.

Pershore

Boasting possibly the most beautiful flowers in the UK, The Real Flower Petal Confetti Co. are opening up their multiple floral fields (including an impressive sunflower offering) once again in August 2021.

Located just on the other side of the Cotswolds in Pershore, these flower fields are worth the drive – and Wyke Manor makes for a stunning backdrop.

In fact, the company primarily sells biodegradable floral confetti (the UK’s first… no biggie), so if you’ve got a special occasion coming up, why not pick up some for yourself?

Opening times: tbc – check the website for more details

Price: tbc

Address: Wyke Manor, Wick, Pershore, Worcestershire, WR10 3NZ
