Snowdrops are, in our household, considered a celebration, the first signs of spring emerging from a cold, gloomy winter. We are lucky to have a small display that grow wild in our local woods and it’s always a pleasure to see those white heads popping up out of the baron in the first weeks of January as we are trudging through on the early morning dog walk before work!
It’s always nice to plan a little outing to view larger displays, and gives us something to look forward to. This list of 3 places are places that we enjoyed visiting last year and that boast glorious carpets of snowdrops from mid January to end of February (although you may want to check with each place before visiting!)
1: Walsingham Abbey, Norfolk £5pp, woodland walks, dogs welcome on lead. Our favourite place to view snowdrops, absolutely spectacular displays within the grounds of a ruined Medieval Priory
2: National Trust Ickworth Hall NT members free, otherwise £4.50 winter price for gardens only, dogs welcome on leads
3: Hodsock Priory, Nottinghamshire £5pp, no dogs
This weekend we are off to see the snowdrops at National Trust Anglesey Abbey – I have read great things about their displays so looking forward to it lots!
