The white petals and green leaves of the sensational snowdrop are sure to lift the spirits this January and February

Seeing a swathe of snowdrops is one way to brighten the winter months and one of the best places to enjoy these hardy little plants is Chirk Castle on the Wrexham, Shropshire Border. Visitors can catch glimpses of the bulb throughout the award winning garden, scattered between clipped yews, herbaceous borders, shrubs and rock gardens. Yet, the best place to see them is in the Pleasure Ground Wood; the large formal woodland attached to the garden. And even better, dogs are allowed in this part of the grounds, so your pooch doesn't have to miss out on the fun. 

If you fancy more of a strenuous hike while you are visiting, there are 480 acres of glorious parklands to get the blood pumping, followed by a rewarding cuppa and cake within the 13th Century castle's tea rooms. 

Entry is £15 per adult and £7.50 per child. For more information, visit: www.nationaltrust.org.uk
