Wrap up warmly this winter and enjoy the breathtaking display of snowdrops at Burton Agnes Hall, which runs from 7th February until 1st March (11am to 4pm) each day.
Every February, millions of hardy snowdrops push through the cold winter ground to create a magnificent ‘white carpet’ across the woodland floor at the Cunliffe-Listers’ Elizabethan family home.
The snowdrop walk makes a truly memorable day out at the end of a long winter. The beautiful little flowers are such a welcome sight, and grow in numbers each year. This biblical symbol of hope reminds us that winter eventually gives way to spring, and announces the new season.
After enjoying the charming sight of the snowdrops, visitors are welcomed to the courtyard, where you can find scrumptious locally roasted Fairtrade coffees and speciality teas, home-baked treats and warming meals. The Home & Garden Shop and Gift Shop will be packed with the new season’s stock for a perfect gift or treat. Galanthophiles may also like to buy some Burton Agnes-propagated snowdrops ‘in the green’, which is the best way of building a collection.
