The best spring scenes in the UK include London’s Kew Gardens, Hampshire’s New Forest, and York’s medieval City Walls.
A study of 2,000 adults revealed the most underrated areas of natural beauty as 32 per cent love to discover and share hidden gems with others as the warmer months begin.
The second largest lake in the Lake District – Ullswater – and London’s St James’ and Richmond Park also made the top 10 list of spring locations.
More than a third (34 per cent) intend to get into nature more this year after a long winter, with 44 per cent claiming a change in their mental wellbeing is the most important reason for getting outdoors.
The research was commissioned by London North Eastern Railway (LNER) to launch the third instalment of its free downloadable tourist guide series – showcasing eco-friendly places to eat, drink and stay in York, Dundee and Durham.
Being peaceful (56 per cent), providing a beautiful backdrop to help clear the mind (42 per cent) and making people feel at ease (34 per cent) emerged as the reasons why the spring scenes ranked highly.
David Horne, managing director at LNER, said: “Getting out into nature whether near to home or further afield makes us all feel better.
“Our research has shown that your physical and mental wellbeing can decline if you don’t venture outside on a daily basis.
“For those looking to explore the UK this spring, our guides feature distinctive natural hotspots and historic and cultural attractions that are working hard in their pursuits to become more environmentally friendly.”
