Wylye Down – National Nature Reserve


Like many areas of chalk grassland, Wylye Down NNR is best seen in the springtime but there are many plant species here that are best seen in midsummer.

It’s one of the smaller National Nature Reserves in Wiltshire, but has a wonderful array of rare plant species including the burnt-tip orchard and the early gentian.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a dedicated car park for Wylye Down but access is from the village of Wylye.

For more information and details of how to get there, head to the Wiltshire National Nature Reserve section of the Natural England website.
