Bluebell and Wildflower Walks at Sissinghurst Castle Garden

Venture into Sissinghurst Castle’s woodland and be rewarded with around 126million individual bluebell flowers.  Spot them to the far left and right of the property’s woods which are also bursting with other wild flowers from wooden anemones, red campion Greater stitchwort and cookoo flower to common violet, white and red dead-nettle and yellow archangel, all trying to establish themselves before the tree canopy closes.

Before the bluebells emerge, the woodland lays down a dapple carpet of wooden anemones.  These are low lying white or pinkish petal-like sepals, which close overnight to protect them from the frost and open again in the gentle spring sunlight.    In the garden, made world famous by its creators Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson, the wall flowers, tulips and narcissus are ablaze in the cottage garden and along lime walk.

Enjoy the high scent and colour of the season with a guided walk of the woodland, led by our ranger.

Finish off the walk with a cream tea in the restaurant.

Tickets £12.50 per person including cream tea, booking essential via 0844 249 1895
