Snowdrops and Cycles: Top three places to spot the white flowers

The Snowdrops in the Cotswolds are starting to transform woodland floors and gardens, making for the perfect cycling day out! These pretty white flowers always bloom during this time of the year and signifies the end of winter and the first signs of spring.

Here at the Bicycle Hub, we think that these white flowers are a must see in the Cotswolds and we’ve put together our top three list of best places to spot Snowdrops while on a leisurely cycle ride:

Painswick Rococco Gardens

Located in Painswick, the Rococco Gardens have one of England’s largest naturalistic plantings with over five million snowdrops. The beautiful display can be admired from the end of January and throughout February and you can even wonder around the rest of the stunning gardens before heading to lunch too!

Batsford Arboretum

Located in Moreton-in-Marsh, Batsford Arboretum is a a wonderful place to view the pretty white flowers. The snowdrop collection is slowly filling the arboretum and tickets to visit the arboretum can be bought on their website.

Cerney Gardens

Located in North Cerney, Cirencester, the gardens of Cerney House are a beautiful place to see snowdrops as well as enjoy a whole day out. Admission to the gardens is £5 per adult and £1 per child.

There you have it, our top three places to view the Snowdrops in the Cotswolds this year. Where will you be cycling to next?
