Sussex has a profusion of bluebell woods situated right across the county. The best time to see bluebells is usually from early/mid April to early May, with a peak at the end of the flowering season in April/May but only a week separates stunning carpets of blue from the disappointing fading green of setting seeds. They also tend to flower later after a cold winter.
Here’s a selection of walks during which you can encounter bluebells along the way:
- Arlington and Abbot’s Wood
- Weirwood Bluebell Railway Walk
- Three Circular Walks in Angmering
- A Woodland Walk at Nymans
- Bluebells & Blackbrook Wood
- World’s End Patching Walks
- Stanmer and Ditchling Beacon
Try also Costells Wood in (Scaynes Hill) and Kiln Wood (Chailey).
There are also a couple of very good bluebell woods that are available to visit for a small entrance fee:
