What better way to welcome in the spring than with a visit to Perivale Wood to see the carpet of bluebells.
Kids and adults alike will love roaming the 27 acre area of this ancient oak woodland in west London, where you can spot the meadows dominated by buttercup and yellow rattle in early summer.
Perivale Wood also hosts a number of events during the year, including the Mini Rangers nature explorers group for preschoolers aged 3-5.
Perivale Wood has an annual open day where you can visit. Otherwise, you need to be a member of the Selborne Society - and you can borrow a key to enter the reserve. Joining is straightforward enough - you need to send a letter and a cheque to the membership secretary. All the details are on the website.
