2 day tour
From £58 per person

Enjoy a trip to see the stunning snowdrops at Dunham Massey this winter. Take a nice walk through the winter garden and view hundreds of thousands of snowdrops.

The seven-acre winter garden at Dunham Massey is the largest of its kind in Britain. Since the garden opened in 2009, over 200,000 double and single snowdrops have been planted, which now create a shimmering carpet of white from late December to early February. The garden contains almost 700 different plant species, including 20,000 narcissi that will also be in bloom in early spring. Wildlife continue to be attracted to the garden well into the depths of winter, with snowdrops providing the early forage for bees, and woodpeckers burrowing into tree trunks looking for food.
