Some destinations you may not know about to visit this August…from Time Out
Vauxhall Park Lavender Garden
This small square field of purple buds and fragranced green foliage can be found between the rose pergola and miniature model village in Vauxhall Park. There’s a community lavender harvest at the end of the summer, which is then distilled to produce litres and litres of lavender oil!

The Red Cross Garden
Originally intended to give Southwark children from nearby tenements a space to play, this Victorian garden has been restored to its original design, complete with pond, cottage, bandstand and formal borders.
Redcross Way London SE11EX Tube: London Bridge
Morden Hall Park
Kingfishers perch on reeds by the riverbank, and an old-fashioned waterwheel is slowly turned by the gentle current – in a public space just a few minutes’ walk from the Northern line!
