Britain is notorious for its dreary and depressing weather which rains on our parade daily, but when March arrives, the cold subsides transforming the country into a wildflower wonderland. From the concrete sidewalks of London to Oxford’s lush botanical gardens, the opportunities to soak up spring in England are endless. Before this magical season is up, seize the fine weather and flowers on a trip to one of these blooming places. 


While Oxford buzzes with students year-round, the university town truly comes to life in spring. Here, campus grounds and pristine gardens glow with greenery and radiant flowers, making it an ideal retreat from the stresses of daily life. Meander through the Christ Church Meadow or explore the oldest botanic garden in the UK at the Oxford Botanic Garden. 


Cambridge shoots up with a number of beautiful gardens in spring. Home to over 8 000 plant species from around the globe, the Cambridge University Botanic Garden is a must-visit attraction. Visitors can also admire the beds of tulips and primulas at the Christ’s Pieces Flower Garden or stop for a picnic at Alexandra Gardens. 

East Sussex 

A short trip from Londons’ bustling city centre, East Sussex offers visitors a breathtaking escape beside the sea. When spring arrives, this quaint town bustles with surfers and local tourists all desperate to trade in their busy city lives for sun, sea and sprightly gardens. Whether taking a stroll down the cobblestone streets or stopping to smell the wildflowers and ancient oak woods at the Bates Green Garden, East Sussex is the perfect day trip in spring. 


Although London is the last place you’d expect to enjoy the spring season, it's actually one of the best times of the year to visit the capital. With winter finally gone, the cold and uninviting streets bloom into technicolour bliss with radiant daffodils, tulips and lilies. With the weather warming up, it's also an ideal time to explore the city and make the most out of its renowned outdoor attractions such as the Kew Gardens and the Japanese-inspired Kyoto Garden. 


Teeming with unspoilt beaches and sprawling meadows, Cornwall is a haven for nature lovers and holidaymakers alike. Although it pelts down here in winter, spring transforms this seaside town into the ideal spot for a relaxing outdoor getaway. Explore the mysterious Lost Gardens of Heligan, admire exotic flora at the Trebah or get lost in the maze at the Glendurgan.
