Hedingham Castle Welcomes Spring with Enchanting Snowdrop Walks

Hedingham Castle is pleased to announce the 2024 dates for their much-anticipated Snowdrop Walks, offering visitors a chance to witness the awakening of nature on the historic estate. The enchanting display will take place on selected dates throughout February and into March, starting from Sunday 11th February, providing a captivating experience for families, nature enthusiasts and history lovers alike.

The grounds open from 11am to 4pm on the listed dates, inviting guests to explore the exquisite gardens and the majestic Hedingham Castle itself. Entry tickets include access to both the Castle and gardens, providing a delightful journey through the picturesque woodland adorned with blooming snowdrops.

Visitors can warm up in the charming tearooms inside the Castle, offering light refreshments including a selection of cake. Additionally, well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome (except inside the Castle), making it a perfect outing for the whole family.

As an exciting addition during the February Half term, Hedingham Castle is offering two interactive add-on activities to keep the little ones busy:

Nature Trail (Sunday 18th February to Sunday 25th February):

For an additional £1 per child, little explorers can embark on a Nature Trail around the grounds.
