This year’s snowdrop spectacular starts on Friday, February 7.

The stately home will be open to the pubic from Friday, February 7 to Sunday, March 1.

Each February, hundreds of thousands of hardy snowdrops push through the cold winter ground to create a magnificent white carpet’ across the woodland floor behind the venue.

Owner of the hall, Simon Cunliffe-Lister, said: “Our snowdrops are always a welcome sight; the biblical symbol of hope announces the new season and reminds us that winter eventually gives way to spring.”

The grounds are open from 11am to 4pm each day during the snowdrops event.

At the end of the snowdrop opening, Burton Agnes Hall holds its annual Orchid Festival on Saturday, February 29 and Sunday, March 1.
