The delicate snowdrop marks one of the first signs of Spring, as winter’s frosty grip begins to loosen and nature awakens from its slumber. Usually found in forests and along riverbanks, snowdrops brighten and transform landscapes with their white petals and green leaves. With its vast woodland areas and river pastures, Shropshire is a great place to spot snowdrops from January to early March.


Millichope Park, Munslow

Enjoy a Snowdrop Sunday and Open Week at Millichope Park in Munslow this February. As this is a private family estate, the 14 acres of landscaped gardens, lakes, woodland and walks are only open at certain times of the year in partnership with National Gardens Scheme; to showcase the snowdrops (February), the bluebells (May) and the autumn colours (October). Dogs on leads are welcome.

Winsley Hall, Westbury

Raising funds for Lingen Davies, the annual Snowdrop Walk in the grounds of Winsley Hall is a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike. This year’s event is in memory of June Whitaker, former owner of Winsley Hall and long-term supporter of the charity. Dogs on leads are welcome.

Attingham Park, Shrewsbury

Just a short drive from Shrewsbury, Attingham Park is a picturesque place in all seasons, but this February the team are extending opening hours for Snowdrop Walks in the evening. Wrap up warm, grab a hot chocolate from the on-site café and enjoy the magic of snowdrops along the Mile Walk. Dogs on leads are welcome.

Marrington Escapes

For guests staying on the Estate, each year our Valley woodland is carpeted in crisp white snowdrops. Wander along the Dingle Valley trails and enjoy serene views for as far as the eye can see.
