Gatton Park will once again be showing off its snowdrops in February 2019.

The Gatton Trust says:

“Come for a winter walk through the grounds of Gatton Park. Enjoy displays of snowdrops and aconites around the rock garden during February.

Explore Gatton’s ‘Capability’ Brown parkland and discover the Japanese garden, Victorian parterre and breath-taking views over the lake.

Bird hide open, free guided tours and activities for children, small plant sale.”

The gardens will be open each Sunday in February, and also every day during half term (which runs 12 – 18 February).  Timings are 1pm – 5pm.

On Sunday 10 February, for National Garden Scheme day, the timings will be 11am – 4pm.

Refreshments will be available to purchase in Gatton Hall.

Adults are £5, children go free.

The rest of the year Gatton’s gardens are open on the first Sunday of each month 1pm – 5pm, but there are lots of other events as well – see the Gatton Park website.

The address is Gatton Park, Rocky Lane, Reigate, Surrey, RH2 0TD.

Stretching over 260 acres, Gatton Park lies within the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Its views and lake system were designed by renowned English landscape architect ‘Capability’ Brown in the 18th century.

Gatton Hall is a Palladian mansion and Grade II Listed building.

The site is run by the Gatton Trust, a charity committed to conserving the park and gardens for educational purposes and public enjoyment.
