Description

After the huge success of our Lavender Farm hikes we have decided to organise this day trip to the Lavender Farm for you! This time we will not go hiking, we will spend more time relaxing, taking pictures and enjoying the huge, fragrant perfume of deep indigo flowers!

As Lavender is in season now it is the time to experience the unique beauty of lavender farm. The lavender fields of Provence are much larger, and more famous, but we should also discover the beauty at our doorstep.

Meeting time: at 10:30 in Clapham Junction station.

We will make our way to the platform at 10:43 a.m. If you are late I’m afraid we will not be able to wait and you will be missing the trip. Of course if you want, you can try to catch up with us at the platform, but the host will be making sure the group gets on the right train, so you will have to figure out the way. Also, you will have to find another way of getting in as I will have your train ticket.

Train*: We will aim to take the 10:53 train and to change in East Croydon (11:02) for 11:07 train to Chipstead, arriving at 11:27.

 *Please note that as the rail network is very unreliable, those details might change depending on the train delays and we may take an earlier or later train. The decision might need to be taken by the leader on the spot to suit the group’s needs. If you do not arrive at the meeting time, we can not guarantee that you will be able to catch up with the group as the leader may not be able to update you about any changes – even if you call or message them, as sometimes the phone network might not be available and often they might be busy taking care of the group. Leader’s priority will always have to be the customers that arrived on time. We add the train details in order to help you out if you have problems getting to the meeting point on time, but take no responsibility for any changes – so the only way to ensure you do not miss out on the event is to arrive on time at the meeting point.

Meeting point: You will meet at Clapham Junction Station at the main entrance, next to the ticket offices and Costa Coffee. When you arrive at the station, please ask a staff member for the main entrance (St John’s Hill) as there are a couple of entrances available. It is the one with Sainsbury’s and Costa. If you don’t know the station, please give yourself enough time to find the right spot.

Our host will be holding black balloon with the logo.  

Please give yourself enough time to find the meeting point – it is quite a large station and has many entrances, please check the TFL journey planner for any planned engineering works and please allow enough time for any unplanned disruptions to your journey. If you are late and miss the group no refunds will be provided and there will be no use calling us and asking us to wait as I’m afraid I will not be keeping 30 people who made it on time, waiting for a late comer.

Lunch: Lunch is not included but the cafe at the lavender field is very reasonably priced. You can get nice cheese burgers for £5.5. There are also excellent lavender ice creams for £2.

What`s included: return train tickets, taxis, paypal and admin fee.

Cancellations:

Please note that unless the trip is cancelled the payments are non-refundable as the costs need to be paid in advance. However you may be able to sell your place to your friends or other group members if you follow this procedure: http://katsadventures.com/#plx_progress_faq_section
