Winter Gardens for you to visit

More and more organisations are now planting gardens for winter interest. Perfect to fill the gap between Autumn colours and the first snowdrops which will appear in late January.

We have selected 24 gardens which have all year interest. So do not stay inside this winter, wrap up well and enjoy yourself. Many other gardens look delightful after frosts and snow, so wrap up well and journey out. If you can recommend more please let us know on our Facebook page.

Many gardens also hold activities during the year so visit our events page to see the details.
If you are interested in a garden holiday see our garden holidays page.
