"Discover the hidden hearts, be sure not to miss the large foliage heart for a photo opportunity and get lost together in one of England’s finest Yew Mazes.  

"The Greenhouse Café will also be open for delicious heart themed homemade treats."

Lord Somerleyton, Hugh Crossley, added: "The Queen Of Hearts Garden trail is a perfect way to get outdoors with your loved ones and has been designed as a great family day out.

"We hope the event brings some love, colour, and romantic ballads to your winter break."

Considered one of the finest gardens in East Anglia since the mid-17th century, Somerleyton Hall Gardens continues to delight visitors of all ages and is slowly being re-imagined as a series of interconnected rooms.

To the north of Somerleyton Hall, the charming sunken white garden is set within the footprint of the former winter garden. 

Tickets cost £9.95 for adults, £8.95 for over 60s, £5.95 for children aged between three and 16, with under 3s going free.
