The Snowman™ and The Snowdog Winter Trail

The Snowman™ and the Snowdog are here for winter!

30 November 2019 10am to 5 January 2020 3pm


Join our The Snowman™ and The Snowdog story trail and explore the Gardens at their wonderful, wintry best. With a sprinkling of Snowman-themed activities along the way, it’s fun for everyone. Each trail costs £5, and includes a free prize for every returned, completed guide.


Inspired by Raymond Briggs’ much-loved classic, this beautiful story trail is set to be a family favourite this season.


The proceeds from this trail support the work of the Gardens. A registered charity, the Gardens are continually developed to further Sir Harold’s philosophy of horticulture, conservation, education and recreation. We thank you for your support. 

Guides cost £5 and come with a special The Snowman™ and the Snowdog gift (excludes admission to the Gardens). The Gardens are open from 10am to 5pm, last trail admission is 3pm. On Christmas Eve we close at 4pm with last trail admission at 2pm.

We are closed Christmas Day and Boxing Day. No need to book. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
