Event description

Description

For the first time ever, see the private parkland at Eythrope with a white blanket of snowdrops.

Snowdrops (Galanthus) are a welcome sight in the winter months as they herald the arrival of spring. Translating to ‘milk white flower’, Eythrope’s gardens have an extensive collection of snowdrops and you will see 70 different types of these delicate spring bulbs near the Walled Garden and also naturalised in impressive drifts beneath the canopies of majestic trees in the parkland and woodland garden.

This is the first time that Eythrope’s garden can be explored during the winter months. The woodland garden was developed from informal pleasure grounds, adjoining the artificial lake. Laid out for Sir William Stanhope in the mid-18th century, the lake and many of the trees predate Alice de Rothschild’s ownership of Eythrope. Alice made improvements to the garden, adding the boathouse, ornamental rock work and influencing the planting schemes including the Snowdrops. More recently snowdrops and winter flowering shrubs have been added to create a truly inspiring winter walk.

Visits to this private garden are accompanied by Waddesdon’s guides and last approximately 90 minutes.

  • Please arrive at Waddesdon Manor car park at least 15 minutes, 10.15 for morning tour and 12.15 for the afternoon.
  • There are toilet facilities at the Welcome Pavilion.
  • The bus to Eythrope gardens departs promptly at 10.30am and 12.30pm.
  • Unfortunately, latecomers cannot be admitted
  • This is an outdoor event, please dress warmly and be prepared for wet weather as you will be outside for the duration of the tour. Please wear appropriate footwear for muddy and uneven ground.
  • Visitors who wish will be able to visit the grounds and gardens at the Manor on the day (open 10am-4pm) where there will be more snowdrops and other winter bulbs, colourful bark and stems, and scented shrubs to see in the garden.
