Blossom Week

Celebrate Blossom Week at Buckland Abbey

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Immersing yourself in nature, even briefly, can help with the stresses of daily life. Join us at Buckland Abbey to celebrate the beauty of blossom.

There will be a multi sensory display of crafted blossom in the Great Barn with music inspired by blossom and floral scents. You can also get creative by writing a Haiku on a blossom tag and hanging it on the wish tree.

Connect with nature with blossom bathing under the fruit trees in the upper walled garden or enjoy a picnic here. Wander round the gardens and look for prompts to take in the beauty of blossom.

Pick up a free blossom spotter sheet from Visitor Welcome and have a go at identifying the different types of blossom around the gardens.

Join in and share your photos on social media using #BlossomWatch.
