SPRING BLOSSOM TRAIL - Evesham in Worcestershire
The beautiful Vale of Evesham is one of the most fertile areas for fruit-growing in the country, and every spring thousands of blossoming fruit trees transform the landscape into a riot of colour. The Blossom Trail covers 40 miles of some of the prettiest countryside in Worcestershire.
Best in bloom: Depending on the weather, the flowering season usually lasts from late March to early May. It begins with plums and damsons, followed a couple of weeks later by pears and then apples.
And there's more: For the energetic, there's also a Blossom bike-trail. Evesham railway station is the suggested starting point.
When to Go : April and early May.
How do I get there by train? London Paddington to Evesham Station or Moreton-in-Marsh Station if staying in Broadway.
Places to Stay - Accommodation at Evesham and Broadway (Broadway is 5 miles from Evesham).
ANNUAL RIVER FESTIVAL
In July each year, Evesham hosts a spectacular weekend - The River Festival - where boats moor alongside Workman Gardens for an illuminated boat festival with fireworks.
