Find a carpet of beautiful bluebells in Wanstead Park.
We’re always after some quality flower-spottage here at Secret London. The bitter cold of March, followed by a balmy late April means all sorts of bloomin’ is happening at once.
That’s why we’re psyched to see all these gorgeous bluebells blooming in Wanstead Park’s woodland. It’s proper peaceful.
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 this.
Bluebells don’t hang around for too many weeks, so go pay them a visit while you can.
Location: Chalet Wood, Wanstead Park, E11 2:LT. Nearest station is actually Wanstead, not Wanstead Park. See it on Google Maps.
Opening hours: dawn ’til dusk.
