Snowdrop Weekends at The Bishop’s Palace 30th January – 21st February 2021 10am-4pm
"The Snowdrop, in purest white array, First rears her head on Candlemas day."
If you’re looking for a reason to celebrate the arrival of Spring, why not head down to The Bishop’s Palace in Wells for their Snowdrop Weekends.
Candlemas Day is on 2nd February, so the Palace is beginning their snowdrop activities on January 30th and continuing each weekend until 21st February.
Head gardener James Cross says “The Snowdrop Weekends have proved to be hugely popular in recent years, so we thought we’d start them in the last week of January this year. We’ve noticed that the snowdrop season seems to be beginning and ending earlier each year, and we’ve had some extremely temperate conditions in the past couple of years, so don’t leave it until the last day to visit, as you might find they’ve already gone!”
Visitors can collect a printed Snowdrop Walk which will guide you around the Moat banks carpeted with spectacular snowdrops, and across the Willow Bridge to enjoy an Arboretum full of snowdrops of several varieties.
Each weekend a children’s trail will also be available from the ticket office with a small prize upon completion. So, cheer yourself up this February by exploring these beautiful flowers and seeing the Gardens begin to awaken Spring.
Included with standard admission.

  • Corporates
