Benington Lordship Gardens

The historic site of Benington Lordship, and the views over surrounding parkland lend this garden a unique atmosphere. It is famed for its displays of snowdrops around the moat, ruins and Pulham Folly which are complemented by helebores and winter flowering shrubs.
A winter stroll also incorporates the ponds with reflections of the shrubs with coloured barks.
Spring follows with swathes of scillas,  daffodils, and fritilaries, before the summer glory of the roses and spectacular double herbaceous borders.
In the walled kitchen garden, vegetables are still grown, alongside the growing collection of named snowdrop varieties - 200 to date.

2014 - For opening times at Benington Lordship visit website. For children an amusing animal quiz trail keeps them occupied!
2014 opening times for snowdrops are 8 Feb - 2 March, 12-4pm daily. All other opening time are on the website.
