Snowdrop season is upon us and that means beautiful settings across Nymans, West Dean Gardens and more Sussex spots. We round up some of the best photos and locations…

Nymans, Handcross

The National Trust-owned Nymans remains a hot spot to see snowdrops during the season with the lawn carpeted from January to March. You may also be able to spot the less well known snowflake plant.

Highdown Gardens, Worthing

Part of the National Garden Scheme's Snowdrop Festival, Highdown Gardens are hosting a special winter snowdrops, bulbs and shrubs open day on Sunday 2 February 2019. They are open every week day (plus Mother's Day) between January and March.

West Dean Gardens, West Dean

The gardens reopen on 1 February 2019 with bulbs erupting across the lawns with early spring the best time to enjoy the emerging displays.

Petworth Park, Petworth

Snowdrops are what we're focussing on here, and the grounds of Petworth Park are a great place to see them this season. However, why not make a day of it and enjoy everything winter has to offer, enjoying the sights of trees, stunning misty views and winter berries.

Sheffield Park, near Haywards Heath

Another National Trust location, Sheffield Park may be famed for its autumn views, but it's as equally worth a visit in the colder months with snowdrops on show.

Snowdrop Festival

That National Garden Scheme is running its fifth annual Snowdrop Festival with gardens open across the country. Click here to find out which gardens are open in Sussex.
