BLUEBELLS have blossomed in the region.

Almost half of the world's bluebells are found in the UK – making them a relatively rare sight for the rest of the world.

Likely due to the colder weather this year, they seem to have flowered slightly later this year.

With the freedom to travel across the region, it is the perfect time to enjoy a tranquil walk in some of the best spots for bluebells in Wales before their short-lived season ends in May.

There are several gems in and around North Wales that offer an enchanting place to spot some wild bluebells:

Chirk Castle, Wrexham

Enjoy a self-led walk through the woods and see the cheerful bluebells and other spring delights at Chirk Castle.

Follow the blue trail on the estate walk into the woodland to find all the best places to view this beautiful bluebell woodland.

To avoid disappointment please book your visit in advance, especially at weekends & busier times.

Coed y Felin, Flintshire

Ancient pathways criss-cross this woodland site, leaving clues to its long-held links with the local population. Its timber has been used to support the village for centuries. The site of today, however, couldn’t be further from its local mining roots.

its peaceful woodland and sunny grassland are filled with colour and life.

The lower path follows the old Mold-Denbigh railway line. It’s wheelchair-accessible and takes you to two picnic tables which are great for experiencing the show of bluebells.
