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 and recreation.
Park Wood has also been opened so that an additional 25 acres of outside space is available to all of our visitors.
Before visiting we recommend that you download a copy of the Map that includes the current one way system that is in place and the locations of the daffodils.
Make some special family memories this Easter with a garden Easter trail.
Follow clues to find a variety of ‘things that hatch’ as you walk through the grounds. Learn a little about each creature that starts life in an egg and what environment they live in before you find them hiding in the gardens.
As well as the Easter trail, a visit to Hever Castle in spring offers a great chance to explore the stunning gardens. Enjoy a dazzling display of spring blooms from late-flowering daffodils to hyacinths, camellias and tulips.
Tickets for this period are not yet on sale.
