Gardens: Snowdrops at Thenford Arboreteum near Banbury – Lord Heseltine’s estate

Event Details

This is a re-run of our February 2024 event which had to be cancelled due to flooding onsite. This event proved very popular and many members were disappointed when they failed to get a ticket last time, so don't delay in buying yours!

Join us to see the snowdrops at Lord Heseltine's place - Thenford Gardens near Banbury on the Oxford/Northants border.  The Garden has been developed over the past 40 plus years and is only open for a limited number of days throughout the year. Snowdrops have grown in Thenford’s woodlands and churchyard for decades, carpeting the ground with a wash of white flowers each February. Since the nineties, the collection has been expanded extensively. See here for more info on their snowdrops .  For more details about the rest of the Garden, click here.
