Between early April and the end of May 2015, the stunning Bluebells are out, and there are some woodlands with gorgeous carpets of Bluebells in Sussex, close to Brighton and Hove.
Here are some of the best places to go, and if you know of any other hidden gems, please comment below.
- My personal favourite is the Bluebell Railway – all steam railway! See my listing here for information on how to get there, and entry fees for the train rides. For panoramic views of the bluebells, travel in their 1913 Observation Carriage. http://www.bluebellrailway.co.uk/bluebell/events/index.html. Booking essential.
- Arlington Bluebell Walk and Farm Trail’s opening dates for 2015 are 9 April to 10 May and they are open every day including Mondays. “The Blue Walk” is approximately three quarters of a mile, and perfect for seeing the bluebells in Beaton’s Wood. Address: Bates Green Farm, Tye Hill Road, Arlington, Polegate, East Sussex BN26 6SH

- Brede High Woods, in Cripps Corner near Battle, East Sussex – recommended by the The Woodland Trust as a beautiful woodland to visit.
The Sussex Wildlife Trust has a list of nature reserves in Sussex where you can also enjoy the beautiful bluebells.
