Before booking, we advise that visitors read the latest Know Before You Go information that provides full details of what will be open and closed.
Find out what’s on in February and later this spring:
Around 90,000 snowdrop bulbs have been planted in the Gardens over the past few years including a mix of single and double snowdrops, interspersed with some unusual varieties in the Winter Garden such as the yellow tipped ‘Wendy’s Gold’, a giant Galanthus called ‘Colossus’ which at 9 inches is one of the tallest snowdrops you can find and Galanthus ‘Green Brush’ with its unusual green tipped flowers. A walk in the gardens at this time will provide a welcome boost to flagging winter spirits.
*We recommend that you wear suitable footwear such as Wellington boots as the ground may be boggy in places.
Peak blooming period expected: 2nd & 3rd Week March
With 50,000 daffodil bulbs set to bloom across Hever Castle’s gardens this spring, feel uplifted by the cheerfulness of this exquisite bloom which symbolises new beginnings.
Wander through the gardens at your own leisurely pace and take in the beauty of the daffodils as you take your daily exercise.
We’ve planted over 8,000 new daffodils and there will be a couple of unusual varieties this year. Look out for a gorgeous full double cream white flower with rich tangerine orange segments and a hint of green on the edges called Flower Parade. There will also be a frilled rose red cup called Decoy.
We will be opening up Park Wood so that an additional 25 acres of outside space is available to all of our visitors.
Peak blooming period expected: 2nd & 3rd week of April 2021
