Raveningham Gardens snowdrop season continues until the end of the month.

The gardens are open every day apart from Saturdays when they are closed.

Visitors will be able to enjoy the drifts of snowdrops in the main garden from 11am to 4pm (dusk if earlier).

Proceeds from the Sunday openings will go to Priscilla Bacon Lodge, a centre for specialist palliative care services in Norwich.

Admission costs £5 for adults or £4.50 for concessions, with children under 16 free. Soup and a roll will be available in the tearoom.

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.
