NEW for 2017 - Snowdrop Weekends

17th - 19th and 24th – 26th  February 2017

The Holker Gardens will open for two weekends in February 2017 for the snowdrop season.  Usually closed through the winter months – this will be the first time the Gardens have been open to the public during February since 2011.

Make the most of this rare opportunity to see the Holker Gardens during the winter time - enjoy a gentle stroll and see the trails of delicate snowdrops as the Gardens and Parkland spring back in to life. 

The award winning Holker Gardens (25 acres in all) are part woodland and part formal.  Highlights include the cascade and fountain, The Sunken Garden, Pagan Grove and the 400 year old Great Holker Lime.  Beyond the formal Gardens you will find the vast, rolling expanses of the Parkland, wildflower meadows and pastures.

Gardens, Courtyard Café, Gift Shop and Food Hall open 10.30am to 4.00pm.  Hall closed. Adult £8.50. Child (up to 16yrs) Free of charge. Groups £6.00.  Enjoy free parking and free entry to the grounds and picnic areas, adventure playground, Café, Gift Shop and Food Hall.

Full house for popular chilli eating competition

This weekend’s damp weather didn’t affect the fiery fun at Holker with a full house for the chilli eating competitions hosted by Darth Naga.  A packed Courtyard watched on as 10 competitors (on each day) took part in the lively competition.   Saturday’s competition was the most entertaining yet with Darth commenting it was best one he had ever hosted - humorous contestants were encouraged by the lively crowd - with Jordan from Barrow taking centre stage.  Joint winners took the trophy on Saturday and Ed Duffy was crowned Sunday’s winner after reaching around 250,000 scovilles.
