An early – and truly spectacular – display of bluebells in Wanstead Park


Wanstead Park’s bluebells were on show earlier than usual this year.

“The display was truly spectacular this year. Bluebells countrywide bloomed a week early, which was down to a wet and not-too-cold spring. Some may also put this down to the effects of climate change. Visitors flocked to see the iconic flowers in great numbers, and there was very little trampling to be seen, so well done everyone. The discreet signage has done its job advising people to keep to the paths,” said Gill James of Friends of Wanstead Parklands.
