Find a carpet of beautiful bluebells in Wanstead Park.
We’re always after some quality flower-spottage here at Secret London. The chill of March, followed by a balmy late April means all sorts of bloomin’ is happening at once – like this sea of beautiful bluebells in Wanstead Park.
We’re psyched to see all these gorgeous bluebells blooming, a sure sign that summer isn’t far away. A wander through the woods will cure your blues and have you feeling proper peaceful. Though the bluebells are now out, they’re not expected to hit peak bloom for another week or so, meaning you’ve got time to plan a visit.
The nearest station for this bucolic spot is Redbridge, in Zone 4 – just 23 minutes from Liverpool Street, so not too shabby for such an aesthetic slice of spring. The large park contains open spaces, woodland trails and peaceful ponds to explore, and a small visitor’s centre that’ll sell you an ice cream.
But mostly lots and lots of these late spring scenes.
Bluebells don’t hang around for too many weeks, so go pay them a visit while you can!
