Take the whole family for a walk among the Hertfordshire bluebells this spring

Archant

In April and May every year, tiny bluebells begin to scatter themselves across woodland floors all over Hertfordshire. We have gathered some of the best places to view these delicate blooms

Ashridge Estate

The Ashridge Estate bluebell walk is the perfect trail to see the lovely blue flowers and enjoy some exercise in the stunning woodland of this grand and historic estate.

Gobions Wood

Bursting with the violet-blue flowers in the spring, Gobions Wood is also home to over 500 species of fungi so there will be plenty to see and you won’t want to miss a square inch in this splendid wood.

Heartwood Forest

The new Heartwood Forest near St Albans, being less than ten years old, is still in its youth but is nonetheless a wonderful place to see bluebells and other wildflowers.

Hitch Wood

With blankets of bluebells surrounding you in Hitch Wood near Hitchin, you can stop off for a sit on one of the benches that peppers the woodland to absorb the gorgeous view.

Longspring Wood

Wandering through the beech, ash and hazel trees that rise from the bed of bluebells on the ground of Longspring Wood near Kings Langley, will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Pryors Wood

With drifts of bluebells spreading across Pryors Wood in Stevenage, there is also plenty of other flora and fauna to discover.

Wormley Wood and Nut Wood

Wile away a spring afternoon strolling through the trees of the neighbouring Nut Wood and Wormley Wood, that are peppered with bluebells. Bring your binoculars to enjoy some birdwatching too.

Sherrardspark Wood

Located to the north west of Welwyn Garden City is Sherrardspark Wood, the sessile oak and hornbeam woods that are alive with bluebells in the early months of the year.

Tewin Orchard and Hopkyns Wood

The traditional English orchard of Tewin with lovely fruit trees that blossom in the early spring is situated next to the shady Hopkyns Wood that welcomes swathes of bluebells in April and May.
