Tulip Festival at Hever Castle & Gardens features 20,000 blooms

By Angela Cole

There are some 20,000 tulips blooming in the sunshine at the Tulip Festival at Hever Castle and Gardens.

Bursting into colour, visitors to the Tulip Celebrations can enjoy a tulip trail either self-guided or with Hever’s head gardener Neil Miller to see the flowers in all their glory.

There will be a range of colours and varieties throughout the grounds, along the Pompeiian Wall, in the traditional Tudor Garden and the Italian Garden.

The history of the tulip will also be celebrated this year with displays and information inside the castle about the Elizabethan horticultural boom.

There will also be floral displays inside, put together by in-house florist Pamela Brise.
