Bluebells, or hyacinthoides non-scripta to give them their Latin name, are beginning to flower across the region.

Often flowering close together, they can form a beautiful carpet of colour which makes them a sight nature-lovers are keen to seek out.

We've put together a few ideas of where you will be able to spot these natural displays.

Arley Hall

There will be a bluebell walk at Arley Hall and Gardens in Northwich on Saturday, April 23 and Sunday, April 24 at 11am, noon and 2pm.

Tickets are £2.50 - £1.

Call 01565 777353.

Tushingham Hall

Another bluebell walk will take place at Tushingham Hall on Sunday, April 24 from 2pm-5pm in aid of the Hospice of the Good Shepherd and Tushingham Church.

Admission is £5 which includes tea and a scone.

There will also be cake, produce and bric-a-brac stalls.

Children go free and dogs are welcome on a lead.

Marbury Country Park

The 'Big Bluebell Watch' has started on behalf of the Woodland Trust.

Bluebells are often spotted in the woodland in Spring and you can record your sightings which can be added to the Woodland Trust map.

See here for more details.

Rode Hall Gardens

Experience one of the finest bluebell walks on the North West where visitors can enjoy the carpet of ancient Bluebell's.

New for 2016, visitors can enjoy the bluebells more extensively due to the recent discovery and restoration of an old path through the Old Wood previously used by villagers walking to the house in the 1800s.

From Saturday, April 30 to Sunday, May 8.

Open daily from 11am - 5pm.

Admission is £5 for adults, £1 for children and under 5's go free.

Groups are welcome by appointment.
