More information, or wait for flowers

Without details of size and where it is growing, all you can say is that it could be any one of very many bulbous or rhizomatous perennials.
Based purely on the balance of probability, it is likely to be a cultivated, garden plant of some kind and at this time of year, in clumps that dense, that means a species or variety of bulb, possibly a species/variety of galanthus (snowdrop).

Could this be a garden bluebell?

Looks like it could be a clump of the increasing Hybrid Bluebells that are escaping from gardens everywhere (especially London). Often these are hybrids with Hyacinthoides non-scripta x Hyacinthoides hispanica or it could be Hyacinthoides hispanica (Spanish Bluebell) which is less frequent

mystery plant

Agree with Genghis Attenborough. 99% sure it's a garden bluebell. Most likely the Spanish bluebell Hyacinthoides hispanica
