SNOWDROP DAYS
Sunday 10th February 2019 - 10am - 4pm
Sunday 17th February 2019 - 10am - 4pm

On Snowdrop days visitors can enjoy access to the grounds of this private former Royal residence, also taking in delicate hellebores and carpets of winter acronites. They can enjoy a stroll down the quarter-mile Lime Tree Walk, which was planted by royal visitors to the Hall during the 1920's. Plaques on the trees show the dates when dignitaries including King George V and Queen Mary planted them.

We will be opening the gardens once again for snowdrops on Sunday 10th and 17th February 2019 - 10-4pm. The spectacular display of snowdrops in 17th-century Goldsborough Hall’s 12-acre royal gardens are made up of two species – single Snowdrops Galanthus nivalis and double Galanthus nivalis ‘flore pleno’.

A Species Snowdrop Walk was created in 2012 with expert help from Mike Heagney of Tudor Croft, and Della Kerr, both committed galanthophiles.

It features over 50 rare varieties of snowdrops in a newly cleared area of the woods – some so rare they haven’t even been named yet!

The Walk includes G Elwesii, G S Arnott, G woronowii, G James Backhouse, G Magnet, G Hill Poe, G Brenda Troyle and G plicatus Washfield Warham, G Jaquennetta, G Bill Bishop, G Mrs Thompson and G Titania amongst others.

Species snowdrops have been kindly donated by Mike Heagney or bought from The Beth Chatto Gardens and Cornovium Snowdrops.

Please wear warm clothes and bring flat shoes or suitable footwear for the weather conditions. Parking is limited so please travel in groups if possible. Dogs are allowed if they are kept on a lead.
