EXPLORE the largest winter garden in Britain this February and celebrate the beginning of spring at Dunham Massey.

More than 250,000 snowdrops have been planted in the garden at the National Trust property and a staggering 500,000 are ready to flower.

The display at Dunham Massey, by the National Gardens Scheme, is to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Help the Hospices and Crossroads Care.

It will be open throughout February from 11am to 4pm, costing £8 for adults and £4 for children.
