Snowdrop Weekends return to The Bishop’s Palace from 29th January 2022

If you’re looking for a reason to mark the arrival of spring and longer days, The Bishop’s Palace’s popular “Snowdrop Celebrations” return to Wells from 29th January running each consecutive weekend until 27th February 2022.

Since 2018 visitors have enjoyed the carpets of snowdrops around The Bishop’s Palace Gardens every spring. For 2022 each weekend in late January and February will celebrate the peak of the snowdrop-flowering season.

To complement the themed weekends, visitors can collect a printed Snowdrop Walk which to guide them around the Moat banks carpeted with spectacular snowdrops, and across the Willow Bridge to enjoy an Arboretum full of snowdrops.

And each weekend little ones can pick up a children’s trail from the Palace Ticket Office with the reward of a small prize upon completion and a variety of artisan craft stalls and children’s activities will be in the Undercroft.

Head Gardener James Cross says “The Snowdrop Weekends have proved to be hugely popular in recent years but the growing season can be variable, so don’t leave it until the last day to visit, as you might find they’ve already gone!”

So, head over to Wells to celebrate spring at The Bishop’s Palace and enjoy these beautiful flowers in a stunning setting.

Admission: Entry is included with any standard admission including The People’s Ticket and Membership.  You can buy an admission ticket online HERE or at the Ticket Office on your arrival.
