Snowdrop Walks in Essex

Snowdrop Walks Essex – Wondering where to find snowdrop flowers near me in Essex

Snowdrops are a fairly easy plant to take care of and snowdrop bulbs multiply as the years go by, meaning you may eventually have your very own snowdrop garden, but until then, here are some of the best Essex snowdrop walks.

Snowdrop Walks Essex To Explore

Audley End House and Gardens

Location : Off London Road, Saffron Walden, Essex, CB11 4JF

Audley End is a glorious Jacobean stately home owned by English Heritage.

The walled kitchen garden at Audley End House and Garden is based on Victorian times with produce used by the household.

But what makes this garden unique is that it is cultivated organically, the produce ending up in the organic shop for visitors to buy, rather than on the banqueting table.

From around mid January to mid March there are great displays of snowdrops.
