Walking through any forest can be a relaxing experience. Nature just has a way of calming us and giving us some peace of mind. But imagine walking through a forest where the sun is shining, the trees are tall, and the ground is covered in a wash of cheery blue and purple petals — doesn't that sound like something straight out of a fairy tale?
Luckily, you can visit this magical destination in real life thanks to all the in the world. Our favorite one is near East Sussex in England, which will soon be covered in these flowering beauties.
This particular forest became popular in 1972 when a local school set up admission for the park in order to raise funding for an outside swimming pool. Today, there's a path that's about half a mile long and has been designed in the woods for visitors looking to stroll through the wonder. Even better: It's wheelchair accessible so everyone can enjoy this beautiful destination on a glorious spring day.
Interestingly enough, scientists believe bluebells date back to at least 1600. And since they're an indicator species (basically they're a dominant plant) in ancient woodlands, you can find bluebell forests in several other locations around Europe, including Belgium, Ireland and other places in Great Britain.
While you may have to pay a fee to enter the parks, it's totally worth it if you ask us.
