Snowdrops to hail the Spring
Hedingham Castle opens their grounds for a spectacular display this spring.
In late Winter and early Spring the ancient landscape around Hedingham Castle is blanketed with magnificent drifts of snowdrops,
 
 These were planted with at least thirteen different varieties in the nineteenth century making the Castle’s winter gardens possibly the most romantic in the East of England. Snowdrops cover the steep slopes of the motte and bailey and set off the remarkable trees and lakes in front of the Georgian Mansion House. 
 
Come and explore the valley walk, the bog garden and the ornamental lake with glimpses of the iconic 110 foot Norman Keep appearing and vanishing through breaks in the trees above you, all set amongst the astonishing display of snowdrop flowers. 
 
The café will be open for hot coffee, cakes and a selection of light refreshments on the garrison floor of the keep. 

 
Hedingham Castle is open for Snowdrop Sundays on the 9th & 16th of February and the 2nd of March, from 11am – 4pm.
