Spring Walks at Chartwell

The lakes at Chartwell, a National Trust property in Kent

There's plenty of nature to be found on a spring walk around the Chartwell estate. From early spring delicate white wood anemones begin to peek through the green undergrowth. Around late March you'll be greeted into the Chartwell car park by 19,000 daffodils nodding in the breeze. Then of course comes the bluebell season, when the woodland floors becomes swathed in blue. Keep coming back to see the spring colour slowly transform.

Mariners Hill Walk 

If you're searching for bluebells this spring then look no further than Mariners Hill at Chartwell. From around mid April a sea of blue emerges from the green undergrowth as the English native bluebells take over. This 45 minute walk also offers some fantastic views over the Chartwell estate and further across to the Weald of Kent. Please stick to the footpaths and help us protect our fragile bluebells for others to enjoy.

Please help look after the bluebells 

'Bluebells are my most favourite sign of spring. They are beautiful yet so fragile. There's something really lovely about helping to protect them, because they do need our help' - Crispin Scott, Wildlife & Countryside Adviser.
By sticking to the paths you are protecting the native British bluebell so it will flower next year and for years to come.
