Places to visit in April and May


I love bluebells. The first time I saw them was in England, and I loved them so much that what I most wanted was to have bluebell decorations for my wedding.
These flowers come at a certain time obviously, and they bloom usually in April and May.



Now, why am I telling you about flowers, when this post is about travel?!
Well, because the list I am going to give you, is the best places to visit to see that beauty that is the bluebell flower.
It is very romantic and could totally be taken as a honeymoon, or even Valentine's day trip, if that was in the right month for it. Hehehehe

But April and May are soon coming up, and you can program yourself to have this visit, even if for Valentine's you give your partner a ticket to one of these places for April or May.

Too much blablabla, let's get to the places:

Blickling Estate, Norfolk

The best time to see the bluebells extend as a carpet here is late April to early May, one of the best paths to take is through the Great Wood.

Buckland Abbey, Devon

There are 2 miles spring walks usually at the beginning of May at the Great North Wood in the afternoon period.

Godolphin, Cornwall

Usually at the beginning of May you can join an informative walk and talk with Godolphin's gardener, and see all the varieties of bluebells there are.

Rufford Old Hall, Lancashire

The best time to visit this one is late April and early May, at the Beech Walk and the North Woods. The hall has 14 acres of gardens and woodland, in a mix of native tress and a carpet of bluebells.

Hardcastle Crags, West Yorkshire

Best to be visited in May, as the flowers reach their peak. This is know as "Little Switzerland" for the valley sides, pathways and river between the woodland and bluebells.

  8. Rufford Old Hall looks rather beautiful. Am going to check that link in a moment! I love bluebells too. There's a wood near us where they have a secret garden (you can look, but can't walk there) and it's covered in bluebells! Oh Paola. THANK YOU! You just reminded me to visit this year. I say to hubs every year that we miss them and all the other spring flowers in the amazing garden we like best, because they flower earlier than ever each year and we forget until it's too late!!
