This event attracts visitors from far and wide to see the millions of snowdrops in fragrant winter borders.
The height of summer is the time when musical, artistic and cultural activities are staged throughout the district and the rural villages of Bassetlaw abound with summer festivities. Many residents open their gardens to the public and stage spectacular village events. A leisurely walk along the Chesterfield Canal is probably one of the best ways to enjoy a long summer evening, stopping to sample the delights of one the many picturesque pubs along the way.
As evenings draw in and the leaves turn to gold, the stunning autumnal displays seen in Clumber Park can easily rival those of America's New England states. Probably the most enjoyable way to appreciate the colours is by hiring a bicycle from the centrally located National Trust Hire Shop within the park.
Elsewhere the villages again come into their own with unique Flower, Ploughing and Harvest Festivals details of which can be found at Retford Tourist Information Centre.
The onset of cold winter evenings mean the year is almost at an end. But the district is alive with seasonal concerts and festive celebrations. The light switching on ceremonies in Retford and Worksop are annual events as are Santa's boat trips on the Chesterfield Canal.
No matter what time of year you plan to visit this picturesque district of North Nottinghamshire you can be assured of the warmest of welcomes.
