Up for an afternoon of flower-filled adventure this spring (or just need a new backdrop for your posts)?

Using ‘eye-tracking’ software to record the average length of time people lingered on photos of different flower fields, hotel chain Premier Inn has just released a ranking of the world’s most beautiful flower fields.

Topping the list is Daisy Flower Field in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park, with people lingering on a photo of the mountain-backed field for an average of 3.89 seconds. It's the only South American destination to feature.

Europe boasts some of the world's most scenic flower fields, with eight of the top 15 flower fields in the world located here. In second place, Monet's Garden at Giverny in France is tied with the Crested Butte Wildflower Festival in Colorado, US, with an average gaze time of 3.46 seconds. Canada’s Butchart Gardens and Mainau Island in Germany complete the top five. 

Two UK fields found a spot in the top 15. The stunning sunflower fields at Hitchin Lavender Farm in Hertfordshire just made it into the top ten, while Castle Farm Lavender Field in Kent earned the fourteenth spot in global rankings.
