Tulip Celebrations – CANCELLED



Tulip Festival


Usually, at this time of the year, Hever Castle’s Head Gardener, Neil Miller is busy providing garden tours to visitors during Hever Castle’s annual Tulip Celebrations event.

This year during lockdown he’s taking some time out of his busy gardening schedule to provide a virtual tulip tour and some planting advice.


Be uplifted by over 20,000 tulip bulbs proudly standing to attention and providing a visual feast of spring colour.

The epitome of elegance, tulips look spectacular planted en masse in either a kaleidoscope of mixed colours or in a uniform colour palette. The Italian Garden at Hever Castle will play host to the largest of the tulip planting displays with a kaleidoscope of colours fanning down the length of the gardens towards the Loggia and the lake
