Event Series Event Series: Snowdrops at Welford Park

Snowdrops at Welford Park Sunday

3 March

Welford Park maybe known to some as the home of the Great British Bake Off but come late wintertime, you will see one of the finest snowdrop collections in the UK. The dainty droplets of snowdrops thrive amongst the 5-acre beech wood, enchanting riverbanks of the River Lambourn and the glorious gardens at Welford Park.

From Wednesday 31 January to Sunday 3 March the award-winning grounds of this glorious private estate are open to the public (Wednesdays to Sundays, closed Monday and Tuesday) to enjoy the swathes of snowdrops, hellebores, aconites and winter flowering shrubs.

Wrap up warm and enjoy a walk around the grounds of the picture-perfect Queen Anne style house then head to the tea tent for a warming drink and bite to eat to round off a lovely day.
