100,000 sunflowers in bloom at Cotswold Farm Park’s Sunflower Festival

Cotswold Farm Park's ever-popular Sunflower Festival begins.

Back in June, the popular visitor attraction sowed 5,000 sq m with seeds which have produced approx. 100,000 flowers. The vibrant sunflowers are now in peak bloom for visitors to weave through and capture family photos.

Adam Henson said: "I couldn't be prouder of our sunflowers! The flowers will not only be enjoyed by our visitors, but will also become an important source of pollen and nectar for our wildlife as so many of our wider farmland's flowers haven't survived due to the drought."

Families visiting the event were spotted immersing themselves into the display and choosing a cut stem to take home with them.

The event is open daily between 11.00am and 5.00pm for visitors to see the Sunflowers, as well as the attraction's Maize Maze and Wildflower display.

Cotswold Farm Park will be sharing regular updates via @cotswoldfarmpark. Entry is included in Farm Park entry and Sunflower Festival only tickets are also available.
