Bluebell woods near you

Bluebells transform the countryside in springtime, creating carpets of intense blue and giving off a delicate scent during April and May. Bluebells thrive in ancient woodlands so it’s no surprise these magical displays have given rise to folklore and traditions.

We’ve chosen some beautiful woodlands, parks and gardens to admire these springtime flowers and you can also join us for a bluebell walk. Bluebells are a protected species so please remember not to pick them – take a photo instead and share it with us on Facebook or Twitter.

You can watch bluebells blossom on our time-lapse video from Greys Court or find out about spring woodland flowers from Ashridge Estate lead ranger Lawrence Trowbridge.
