February is snowdrop season! We love going on a snowdrop walk this time of year, it feels really special as they are not around for very long. Be sure not to miss them! These are our picks of the best snowdrop walks we have found that are drivable from Bristol.

Where to see snowdrops in and around Bristol:

  • Bishop’s Palace, Wells – Medieval palace and gardens. February is snowdrop month and they have a half term trail on until 19 Feb.
  • Newark Park National Trust, Wooton-under-Edge – National Trust country estate, walks, small lake, small childrens play area, wooden animal carvings, cafe.
  • Dyrham Park National Trust, north of Bath – National Trust site with impressive mansion house, great new wooden play area, tea rooms and second cafe by play area, large estate.
  • Painswick Rococo Gardens, Stroud – Beautiful gardens, cafe, hilly (not the most buggy friendly – I did manage it but baby carrier would be a better choice), adventure play area.
  • Tortworth Forest Centre – Based at Tortworth Arboretum. Only open on event days but there is a Snowdrops visitor day on 18 Feb (booking required).
  • Stourhead National Trust, near Warminster – National Trust beautiful estate with landscaped gardens, cafe, lots of walks.
  • Willsbridge Mill, East Bristol – Free to visit, short woodland and river walks, cafe, wildlife garden, fairy garden.
