Places to see Snowdrops in and around Bath

Everyone is struggling with the winter blues, but one thing we can all look forward to is the new life that nature brings us – beautiful snowdrops. Proof that Spring is…well, springing! Whether you’re out walking the dog or specifically heading out to photograph them, we’ve given you the run-down of the top locations you can find snowdrops in Bath by the dozen.

Read below to find out where you can see these beautiful flowers in and around Bath!

Prior Park Landscape Garden

Prior Park Landscape Garden

Perched on the edge of Bath, stepping into Prior Park Landscape Garden makes you feel as if you’ve just stepped into the rural countryside. The woodland offers the perfect conditions for snowdrops to grow and flourish, so as you can imagine, Prior Park isn’t short of them come early Spring! The winding paths take you down to the beautiful lake and Palladian Bridge (one of only four in the world!) so it’s a beautiful walk too.

Dogs: Allowed on leads.

Parking: Unfortunately, there is only limited disabled parking on-site – visitors are recommended to park in the city centre and catch the bus up the hill.

Price: £7.50 adults, £3.75 children.

Tip: After a tiring walk down to the lake, revitalise yourself with a cup of tea and cake from the tea shed!

Snowdrop Rating: 4/5
