Firstly, we went to 'The Gardener's Arms', which some of you may recognise from the Simon Pegg and Nick Frost film 'The World's End'. It was actually the final pub in the Golden Mile of the film, or The World's End as it's called. Most of the pubs were either filmed in Letchworth or Welwyn (although to be honest, most of them were transformed into pubs purely for filming!), and it's so funny to see all the places I recognise with loads of my favourite actors inside them! I adore the Cornetto Trilogy and I'd never actually been here so I was pretty excited! They did have a large cardboard cut-out of the film but it was shoved in a corner, which I thought was such a shame. I'd have it constantly on show if it were me!
We then ordered a carvery, I had gammon and turkey and a strawberry and lime cider. I hadn't been to a carvery since I was about nine years old, and I thought was delicious!

We next decided to take a wander through the fields towards Hitchin Lavender, which is basically huge fields of lavender. It was kind of difficult to get it all into one photo, but it was massive and smelt absolutely gorgeous! They had converted an old barn into a cutesy shop and a little cafe, which sold yummy looking cakes and treats. We were tempted to try some but were still SO full from lunch that we promised we'd have to go back another day! I almost bought a pot but sensibly put it away, which is really quite shocking for me. As it was a farmyard, it also had a few horses, which were so friendly and approachable. I'm actually quite afraid of horses, I'm not entirely sure why, they've just always kinda scared me! I did get close enough to take a few photos though! The one pictured was named Shadowfax after Gandalf's horse in LOTR, which I thought was adorable.
Despite the humidity it was an absolutely lovely day! All in all we walked around 5 miles and my poor legs are paying for it now! Luckily my trusty hat-tricks didn't blister or bruise my feet! Phew! If you're ever in the area, I highly recommend going to Hitchin Lavender. For £4 you can buy a bag and pick as much of it as you like, and in general it's such a beautiful place to visit in the summer time.
