Mother Nature clearly had her own plan this year and the tulips have bloomed slightly earlier than expected. If you are planning to visit Hever Castle for the tulips we want you to know what has bloomed and what has not! Therefore, we have set up this news page. We will continue to update this page with photographs so you can decide when you would like to visit the tulips.
If you enter Hever Castle via the top gate you will be greeted by two rows of delicate pink tulips. You will then stumble across a large collection to your right. This collection contains 22 different tulip blooms and the majority of them have now bloomed. Head into the Italian Garden and the tulips along Pompeiian Wall have burst into life. Some have already passed their best now and there is a smaller collection to explore. However, the shadier Pergola Walk has bloomed and there is now a kaleidoscope of colour down the length of the gardens towards the Loggia and the lake.
Tulip Celebrations will still be going ahead from 24 – 30 April. There will be free garden tours available with head gardener Neil Miller each day. Plus step into the Castle and enjoy the striking displays by in-house florist Pamela Brise.
