PremierLeague-News.Com - Bluebell season is nearly upon us
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Fans of the great outdoors will know we're now approaching bluebell season in Britain. The beautiful, bright blue flowers usually flower in the UK between mid April and late May, depending on the weather. They will often appear first in the south west of the UK, where the weather is milder - ideal for Londoners looking to get out of the capital. And after a heatwave like the one we had last week, there's a chance the flowers will bloom even earlier this year. For 2021, online travel guide TripSavvy has put together a list of the ten best bluebell woods to visit in April and May.

And one of their top recommendations is a huge country estate just 70 minutes from London by public transport. The Ashridge Estate is a 5,000 acre area of outstanding natural beauty in the Chiltern Hills, on the border of Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire. The National Trust-run estate is made up of woodland, chalk downlands and lush meadows - and, in spring, some of the best bluebells in the country.

. They recommended a visit to Dockey Wood to see some of the best bluebells in the area. TripSavvy said in 2016 the bluebell walks in the area were so popular that the National Trust had to impose a small entrance fee during bluebell season, to protect the fragile wildflowers from being trampled by visitors. However, they add Londoners shouldn't be put off by a fear of large crowds. "This is a magnificent landscape of woodlands, rolling chalk hills, and Iron Age forts for an easy day trip outside of London," advises the website.

For bluebell-hunters, TripSavvy recommends taking the waymarked three-in-one bluebell trail which can be downloaded on your smartphone, and takes you to all the best spots to see the flowers. Alternatively, you can join the estate's specially guided bluebell tours. But bluebells aren't the only things to see in the area, particularly for nature-lovers. The woods are home to a variety of wildlife, such as fallow deer and small muntjac deer, as well as badgers, squirrels, and foxes - although Londoners might not be as excited about the latter.
