The youngsters were bored and I don't blame them, adults went round the prescribed course twice and barely noticed we had been for a walk. It's a nice enough garden, but how many snowdrops do you need to see? We resisted the strategically placed temptation...More

This is a lovely garden. The drifts of snowdrops are a delight. The work being done to control the laurel is opening up the woodland area, with plenty of new growth on the laurels. The firm footpaths make it easy for most people to walk...More

Our first to Hopton Hall. The snowdrop walk was lovely. Some great displays, and gardens well maintained. Enjoyed our scones in the tea room.

We have visited this attraction on several occasions, but since adopting our dog will not be visiting again due to the no dogs policy. Surely dogs on leads should be allowed for this walk! Sorry we do not support non dog friendly placesMore

Sorry you were disappointed that we don’t allow dogs around the snowdrop walk. We really are a dog friendly bunch, it’s just that with several thousand visitors a year it really wouldn’t be that good for the grounds to admit dogs. Obviously guide dogs are...More

A crisp Sunny February day allowed us to have a stunning walk round these attractive grounds. The walk was about 45 minutes long and there were plenty of photo opportunities and obviously there would be other things to appreciate at a different season.

On arriving the staff/owner were very welcoming . Snow drop walk was beautiful. Cafe is a must for a lovely cup of tea and a snack. Plus chance to purchase souvenir whilst helping charity too. Very relaxing beautiful place.

I am sorry only guide dogs are allowed in the gardens. The gardens are closed at the moment and reopen on 20th June, we will be open every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday until August 25th.

Hi I am afraid we are now closed until 20th June when we open for the summer gardens please have a look at our website. The cost this year is £4 per person entry, we do not charge for parking.
