Raveningham Gardens snowdrops
Raveningham Gardens in the Norfolk Broads opens for the snowdrop season from Monday 1 February to Sunday 28 February, 2016 (closed Saturdays). See drifts of snowdrops in the main garden from 11am to 4pm (dusk if earlier). Proceeds from Sundays 14 and 21 February go to Priscilla Bacon Lodge, a centre for specialist palliative care services in Norwich.

Admission is adult £5, concessions £4.50 and children under 16 free. Refreshments will be available in the tea room.

Raveningham Hall is the home of Sir Nicholas and Lady Bacon. It was Sir Nicholas’ mother, Priscilla Bacon, who added snowdrops to the garden.

The 18th century Walled Kitchen Garden with its large glasshouses will be open and visitors will also be able to enjoy views across the new lake established at the turn of the Millennium and the contemporary sculpture in the gardens.

Raveningham Gardens (NR14 6NS) is 10 miles south east of Norwich, signposted off the A146 at Hales, then B1136, t. 01508 548480.
