Recognised for its apples, pears and plums, the Vale of Evesham and its neighbouring area have some of the most productive horticultural land in the country. At this time of year the soft pink tones of cherry and apple blossom contrast beautifully with the white blossom of the pear and plum as the blossom explodes along the road sides of the Vale of Evesham and surrounding areas.
So this spring why not explore the natural beauty that the Vale has to offer by following the 45 mile AA signposted route? You will be sure to journey through some of the most idyllic villages that the area has to offer and be captivated by blossom and countryside.
