Stunning wild flower displays at Attingham Park

Make the most of the spring sunshine this weekend and enjoy the tranquillity of Attingham Park, the popular National Trust property on the outskirts of Shrewsbury.

Attingham Park’s Wardens will be leading guided walks this Sunday (18 May) to show off the glorious wild flowers in the park. They are inviting visitors to put their best foot forward and join them on the walks, immersing themselves in the natural beauty of the countryside. 

The route will take visitors through the park, which is a golden haze of buttercups at the moment before heading into the woods where the contrasting cool blue of bluebells holds sway before returning via the deer park.

Bob Thurston, Countryside Manager said:  ‘This is probably the last weekend to see the bluebells at their best but the buttercups are just coming into their own and 200 acres of golden yellow flowers is a glorious sight. Our guided walks are the perfect way to spend an hour or two, allowing visitors to get the most of their visit at no extra charge and see some of the best sights the park has to offer. There’s no need to book – just turn up and join us on the day.’

The walks will start from the stables courtyard at the property at 11am and 2pm on Sunday 18 May and last about an hour and a half.

The parkland is now open from 8am – 7pm so visitors have even longer to enjoy the best of the weather in this stunning location.
