Blossom in the Vale

Explore the blossoming Worcestershire countryside this spring, suggests Angela Taylor.

 

There is nowhere better to experience fruit blossom than here in the Vale of Evesham which offers the UK's only blossom trail. For a few weeks between mid March and mid May, our countryside bursts into life, gracing the fields with the soft pink tones of cherry and apple blossom and exquisite white blooms of plums and pears.

 

The enchanting trail that criss-crosses the river Avon and meanders through our idyllic villages continues to attract thousands of visitors. A 50 mile AA signposted route taking in the open countryside, towns and villages can be explored by car, coach, bike or on foot. There are amazing farm shops, nurseries, pubs and eateries where you can stop along the way, many of which create products and dishes featuring local produce and the fruits from the blossom.
