Due to the beautiful green spaces we have in the county, Worcestershire offers some of the best locations to view bluebell displays.

Please take care when visiting these ancient plants, they are protected from picking and digging up by the Wildlife and Countryside Act (1981). Bluebells can take years to recover from being trampled so please stick to the paths so that they can continue to be enjoyed year on year.

Malvern Hills

The Malvern Hills are one of the best places to see bluebells in Worcestershire as their wooded slopes host thousands every spring.

It is thought that half of the world’s bluebells are in the UK, and locals often retort that half of the UK’s bluebells seem to sprout on the banks of the Malvern Hills. From mid-April, as the spring breeze warms the wooded slopes of the hills, the delicate blue flowers bloom in their thousands. Head to Jubilee Drive, accessible via a short walk from Black Hill car park, to see this lovely native species.

Clent Hills

As spring approaches, the rolling hills of Clent transform into a breathtaking sea of colour, as the bluebells come into bloom. Nestled in the hill’s valley is an oasis of nature providing plenty of photo opportunities for visitors.

A moderate walk from Nimmings Wood Car Park to view the display can be achieved via a number of marked routes.

Shrawley Wood

Often a bluebell hotspot in the county, Shrawley Wood is famous for its display of bluebells and wildflowers. The best time to visit the woods would be towards the end of April and into May (depending on weather conditions).

The woodland is located North of Worcester, located on the banks of the River Severn.
