The gardens of Anglesey Abbey are set to be transformed into a sea of white as thousands of snowdrops come into bloom early due to the unseasonably warm winter weather.

Anglesey Abbey has one of the finest snowdrop collections in the country, with over 240 varieties, including 20 that have been discovered at the abbey, which this year has a new avenue of snowdrops along the Jubilee Walk.

The abbey’s Snowdrop Festival runs from Monday to March 9.

Snowdrop Tours start at 2pm on weekdays. A limited number of spaces can be pre-booked by calling the Visitor Centre on 01223 810086 with the remaining spaces on a first-come, first-served basis. Visit
