Abbots woods with Bluebells

Book Tickets Online


Located near Polegate, this Wood is a great place for a stroll at any time of year, with walking trails, a medieval lake. This ancient woodland is teeming with wildlife. Dormice live in the woodland understory and the extensive network of paths is home to nearly thirty species of butterfly, including the rare pearl-bordered fritillary. In early spring, the extraordinary song of the nightingale can be heard and summer evenings could reward you with encounters with bats, glow worms and the sound of the elusive nightjar.
