Beautiful blossom in the East of England

Blossom is a sure sign that spring is well underway. Nature's own confetti, nothing lifts the spirits quite like the simple beauty of pink or white petals adorning trees in the springtime. Here's some of the places that might be local to you, where you can witness this seasonal highlight in East Anglia.

Visitors walking through a garden in spring

Visiting this spring 

Our gardens, parks and countryside sites are open. In England our shops are open, along with outdoor seating at cafés. In Wales some shops are open, and cafés are offering a takeaway service. Houses and other indoor areas are currently closed. The safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors from the nearby community remains our priority. We strongly advise booking your visits in advance, especially over the Easter holidays when places may be very busy. Please check the property webpage before you visit and follow government guidance on travel.

Blickling Estate 

Magnolias are among the first trees to bloom in spring and can now be found in almost all continents of the world because of their beauty. At Blickling Estate in Norfolk, you can enjoy the soft pinks and whites of the magnolia trees dotted around the West Garden from March. Typically pollinated by beetles, magnolia flowers do not produce nectar, but they do produce large quantities of pollen, which beetles use for food.
