Bluebells at Sheffield Park and Garden
Mid April until late May is the perfect time for a visit to see the bluebells at Sheffield Park and Garden. There are plenty of places to enjoy them, whether you prefer to stick to the paths or pull on your wellies and venture into the parkland. Here are the best places to spot them around the estate this spring.
In the garden
As you meander along the paths, you will find seas of blue throughout the garden as bluebells enjoy the dappled shade of our vast tree collection. Generally arriving a little later than the woodland bluebells, the garden display sits among other spring colour such as rhododendrons and fritillaries.

This historic woodland has one of the best displays of bluebells at Sheffield Park and recent work has been undertaken to showcase this at its best.
Walk Wood is a hidden delight of peace and tranquility, carpeted with bluebells throughout April and May. As it is off the beaten track, sturdy footwear is recommended and it may not be suitable for buggies and pushchairs. Storm Eunice caused significant damage in February 2022, but we're thrilled to have been able to make safe this much-loved area of the garden in time for spring this year.
The East Park circular walk has a spectacular show of bluebells and also gives glimpses back into the garden across the lakes. It's also great for dog walkers, as this is the area where dogs are free to run off-lead.
