The bluebell woodland at Sotshole Broad in South Walsham will open a week ahead of schedule this year, with the public invited to wander through the flowers from Saturday.


The walk through the privately-owned woodland normally opens in May but has been brought forward after the favourable spring weather enticed the flowers out early.

The woodland is open every day from tomorrow until May 25, 10am to 5pm.

Access is via Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden.

It is a four-mile round trip walk to see the best bluebells which are located at the far end of the wood.

Garden entry, including the bluebell woodland, is adult £6.10, concessions £5.60 and child £3.60, free for under 5s.

There will be a guided walk through the bluebell woodland on Sunday, May 11 starting at the Fairhaven Garden visitor centre, as part of this year’s Broads Outdoors Festival. The guided walk is included in the entry fee.

For more information, visit or call 01603 270449. Dogs are welcome on leads, although there is a small charge.
