The Blossom

wdc-tourism-blossom-trail-logo

Get lost in the enchanting blossom and celebrate the illustrious Blossom Trail by taking either one of our guided coach tours, popular blossom walks or for the active amongst you there is the annual Blossom Bikeaway.

 

Discover your local area afresh this season as the Vale bursts into life with the subtle pink tones of cherry and apple blossom and the striking white blooms of plums and pears. Just follow the Blossom Trail, a 50 mile AA yellow signposted route, criss-crossing the River Avon and meandering through some of the most idyllic villages this area has to offer. The Blossom Trail is among five major blossom events in the world; with others taking place as far afield as Japan and the USA this is an opportunity like no other.

To order a copy please call Angela Tidmarsh on (01386) 565373.

 

Don’t forget to repeat the same outing later in the year and discover the fruits of the blossom on the Vale Trail.
