Snowdrop Weekends at St Botolph’s Church, Swyncombe, Henley-on-Thames, RG9 6EA.

Cakes, tea and coffee, jams, chutney and books will be sold. Click here for more information.

The National Trust website states Ankerwycke has snowdrops (we have never seen them personally) but this is a lovely walk, which is muddy in places during the winter months. On the walk you will see the Ankerwycke Yew – which is believed to be 2,500 years old and apparently also where King Henry VIII courted Anne Boleyn.

National Trust Properties Cliveden and Basildon Park both have some snowdrops according to the National Trust website, we have seen the ones at Cliveden before and they were lovely. I can’t find out exactly when they are in bloom so it might be worth calling ahead to see when they are are at their best.

The National Garden Scheme also have gardens opening up on specific dates throughout the UK so you can look at their snowdrops. Click here to discover more snowdrop locations (the only place listed for the South East is Welford Park)
