Top spots for snowdrops in the East of England

Beautiful drifts of white snowdrops are one of the great pleasures of visiting gardens at the end of winter. They transform woodland and garden floors in January and February and to help you get a closer look, here are some of the best places to see them in the East of England...

Snowdrops House

Anglesey Abbey 

Anglesey Abbey has one of the finest snowdrop collections in the country, with over 300 varieties of these delicate white flowers. There are fabulous displays throughout the gardens, where you can take in their beauty amongst a collection of classical statues. The Winter Garden is also at its prime at this time of year.

Wander around Ickworth for great views on a crisp winter day and follow the path along Lady Geraldine's Walk, as well as The Albana Walk, where snowdrops are complemented by the golden glow of aconites. If it is carpets of white you are looking for, this is the place to visit.

Snowdrops and aconites also feature at Oxburgh Hall, with the woodland walk swathed in white and yellow. Come and take in the stunning carpets of these delicate flowers, as they begin to emerge. Why not join us for a guided snowdrop walk on weekends from Saturday 28 January?

Peckover House & Garden 

At Peckover the garden gates open early in the year, so that you can enjoy what’s in season. The two-acre garden boasts beautiful snowdrops and the orange trees are at their best at this time of year. The Reed Barn tea-room is also open for warming soup and hot drinks to round off your visit.


Sheringham Park 

Another beautiful setting enhanced by displays of snowdrops is Sheringham Park. The Upcher family left their estate to the National Trust, so it’s fitting that Galanthus plicatus ‘Upcher’ features throughout the Park, among other varieties.

Snowdrops in the Pleasure Grounds at Wimpole

Wimpole Estate
