Historic Nottingham Hall allows public access to huge snowdrop gardens for a limited time A historic Nottingham hall is allowing the public access to its huge snowdrop gardens for a limited time. 

Each winter the gardens at Holme Pierrepont Hall are transformed into a blanket of white by thousands of snowdrops. 

The grounds have become known as one of the best places in Nottinghamshire to see snowdrops, along with other winter flowering plants such as hellebores and winter irises. 

This year the gardens will be open between February 5 and March 8, Sunday to Friday. 

Holme Pierrepont Hall is the family home of the Brackenbury family, who are direct descendents of the Pierrepont Family. 

The Tudor manor house on the estate today, which is Grade I listed by Historic England, dates back to 1500. 

The hall’s Courtyard Garden - in itself Grade II listed - is still laid out in the original design of 1875. 

Tickets for the gardens are priced at £6 for adults, with children allowed free access. 

Visitors must pay using cash on the day of their visit.
