Worcestershire Boasts Return Of Europe's Biggest Blossom Trail

Europe's Biggest Blossom Trail Is Back


●50-mile AA signed trail from mid-March to May

●Recent warmer weather promises spectacular displays

●Blossom Trail coach tour exclusive on 20th April


Frothy plum, apple, pear, and cherry blossom alongside hedgerows bursting with hawthorn flowers is a sure sign spring has arrived in Worcestershire. The fruit basket of England, as it is known, created its world-famous Blossom Trail nearly 40 years ago which has since grown into one of the biggest outside Japan.  The trail attracts visitors from all over the world  and saw thousands of people either drive, cycle or even walk parts of the trail in 2019.


Commenting on the trail, Angela Taylor, Wychavon's Blossom Trail organiser, said:


‘Thanks to a few days of sunshine, the blossom has really put on a display. Cherry, pear, and damson along with blackthorn are now brightening our roadsides and most varieties of plum are also now in bloom. Less conspicuous blossoms, such as the Field Maple's clusters of lime green flowers and fluffy pussy-willow are making themselves known. Unfortunately, the fine weather has broken which will affect insect pollination and whilst much can happen between now and August, it looks set to be an early fruiting season again'.


Bigger and better than ever, signage for the 50-mile trail is now live so visit the Vale & Spa website  to download your trail guide. If you're in the area, pop into one of the tourist information centres in the area.


A dedicated Springtime in the Vale coach tour is taking place on Wednesday 20th  April, complete with a blossom tour guide, this trip will take you around the best blossom spots in the area and also provide fascinating historical and entertaining facts.
