Guest - Wednesday March 01, 2017 9:30

The delightful daffodil is Britain’s quintessential spring flower, found blooming in our gardens from February through to May. As our gardens awaken from their winter slumber, discover where you can enjoy some of the best and treat your senses to the magic of spring.

Top spots for daffodils in the East of England

Daffodils are the emblem of springtime. As they start to make an appearance, discover the best places to see them this spring. It won’t be long before they’re creating carpets of yellow in the East of England.

Anglesey Abbey 


The gardens at Anglesey Abbey are always well worth a visit, but in spring they really come to life. With swathes of daffodils popping up all over the 114 acre estate, it’s the perfect spot for a morning stroll or a picnic on the lawn.



Visit Blickling Hall this spring to see the entire garden come alive with masses of colour and fragrances. With the grounds brimming with over 100,000 daffodils this is definitely one of the tops spots to see these golden flowers.

Felbrigg Hall


A host of golden daffodils can be seen carpeting the lawn in front of the Hall at Felbrigg, as spring gets underway. What other signs of spring will you discover?



Spring at Ickworth welcomes swathes of gold to the estate as we begin to see masses of heritage daffodils popping up throughout the pleasure grounds in front of this Italianate palace.

Melford Hall


A visit to this eclectic family home in springtime sees the moat bursting with these cheery trumpet shaped bulbs, including their own specially named Ulla and Melford varieties! Pop along for a walk around the grounds and follow up with a slice of cake in the tearoom.

Oxburgh Hall


A romantic manor house surrounded by a moat and set in a 70 acre estate, springtime at Oxburgh Hall sees the gardens and woodland erupt with drifts of daffodils, choose your own route or opt for one of our guided garden tours

Sutton Hoo
