Itinerary

From parking to trail conditions, this itinerary has all the information you need to experience the Badbury Hill Bluebell Forest in bloom.

Before you start

How to get there

The best way to get to Badbury Hill Bluebell Forest is by car. Search either Badbury Hill or Badbury Clump in Google Maps, or hit the “get directions” button below. You’ll find the forest on the B4019 heading eastbound from Swindon or westbound from Faringdon.

Trail conditions

The entire forest floor is covered in delicate and protected bluebells which have winding trails running through them, however these are off limits and blocked off by dead trees placed there by The National Trust. Walkways surround the bluebells for visitors to use.

Camping rules

The Badbury Hill Bluebell Forest is protected by The National Trust, as well as the land being privately owned by farmers. Aways ask permission before camping. Wild camp at your own risk.

The hike

Step 1

Arrive at Badbury Clump

Badbury Hill has a car park right off the B4019 with an overflow car park open if it’s busy. The best time to arrive is early in the morning for sunrise as there’ll be less visitors and the morning light is perfect.

Step 2

Walk to the south west side

At the end of the car park, you’ll find the signage offering information about Badbury hill. This marks the main entrance into the forest.

Step 3

Enjoy Badbury Hill, the bluebells and the surrounding area

Badbury Clump is a small part of Badbury Forest, but by far the most spectacular with the bluebells. There’s also a wider area of walking trails just north of the clump which are good to explore.
