Snowdrop Day at Goldsborough Hall
The Royal Gardens of Goldsborough Hall will be opening for two Snowdrop Days this February. The second will be held on Sunday 18th February 10-4pm. The spectacular display of snowdrops in 17th-century Hall’s 12-acre gardens are made up of two species – single Snowdrops Galanthus nivalis and double Galanthus nivalis ‘flore pleno’. There is also a Special Snowdrop Walk which features over 40 rare types of snowdrops in a newly cleared area of the woods – some so rare they haven’t even been named yet! Visitors can enjoy access to the grounds of this private former Royal residence, also taking in hellebores and winter aconites. They can enjoy a stroll down the quarter-mile Lime Tree Walk, which was planted by royal visitors to the Hall during the 1920s. Plaques on the trees show the dates when dignitaries including King George V and Queen Mary planted them. Please wear warm clothes and bring flat shoes or suitable footwear for the weather. Dogs on leads permitted. Refreshments in Orangery.
Adults £5; children free. Open 10am-4pm
