The majority of tulips are now in full bloom. Hurrah! Both the Pompeiian Wall and Pergola Walk in the Italian Garden Head are full of colour, plus the majority of tulips in the Long Border have bloomed. Colours range from deep purple, lilac, pinks, reds, oranges, yellows, whites and more! There truly is a rainbow of colour in the gardens at the moment. It’s the perfect time to see the tulips happily swaying in the wind.

The tulips are continuing to bloom in the Italian Garden and the Pompeiian Wall is still looking absolutely stunning. The tulips on the shadier Pergola Walk have now bloomed and there is a kaleidoscope of colour towards the Lake. If you head to the Long Border you will see the gorgeous pink, purple and orange tulips photographed below. Plus, make sure you head to the Castle and you will see these stunning deep purple tulips.

If you enter Hever Castle via the top gate you will be greeted by two rows of delicate pink tulips. Head into the Italian Garden and the tulips along Pompeiian Wall have burst into life. However, the shadier Pergola Walk is yet to bloom so we will keep you updated when they burst into a kaleidoscope of colour down the length of the gardens towards the Loggia and the lake.
