Snowdrop Spectacular

Snowdrop Spectacular

A fabulous 2 Days - Combining the best showcasing of this promise of spring flower. Visit Kingston Lacy, and visit Home of the Great British Bake Off - Welford Park

Snowdrop Spectacular

It is a seasonal show that grows more spectacular by the year, witnessed by an ever-growing fan club of Galanthophiles - after the flower’s scientific name Galanthus - won over by wonderful displays in gardens and woodlands across the UK.

 

Kingston Lacy

The elegant 17th century Kingston Lacy country mansion just outside of Wimborne, is set in attractive formal gardens and parkland. The grounds are renowned for a magnificent display of Snowdrops. At Kingston Lacy the snowdrops cover the curved beds of the Victorian fernery allowing visitors to wind through the twisty paths flanked by a sea of white flowers. The flowers continue down the iconic Lime Avenue path and into the Japanese garden. The juxtaposition of traditional snowdrops in-between Japanese bamboo shoots is unique to this National Trust garden.

 

Welford Park

Welford Park in Berkshire, which as well as being the recent host of ‘The Great British Bake Off ‘ has one of the finest natural snowdrop woodlands in the country.
