Located less than 20 miles (32km) from central London, these two neighbouring ancient woods are rich in native oak and hornbeam. In spring, they are one of the best places in Hertfordshire to enjoy drifts of bluebells, while in summer, visitors have a good chance of spotting one of Britain’s rarest butterflies, the purple emperor.
