“In late Winter and early Spring, the ancient landscape around Hedingham Castle is blanketed with magnificent drifts of snowdrops, planted with at least thirteen different varieties in the nineteenth century, and making the Castle’s winter gardens possibly the most romantic in the East of England. Snowdrops cover the steep slopes of the motte and bailey and set off the remarkable trees and lakes in front of the Georgian Mansion House. Come and explore the valley walk, the bog garden and the ornamental lake with the iconic 110 foot Norman keep appearing and vanishing through breaks in the trees above you, set amongst an astonishing display of flowers. The café will be open for hot coffee, cakes and a selection of light refreshments on the garrison floor of the keep.

Tickets available on the gate.”

ESSEX DAYS OUT : We went to one of their snowdrop days a couple of years ago and were amazed at how many snowdrops they had and what a beautiful display they put on. Read our article and take a look at all the photographs we took!
