TULIP Celebrations: 19 – 24 april 2022

Feel uplifted by over 40,000 tulips proudly standing to attention and providing a visual feast of spring colour. A Kaleidoscope of brightly coloured tulips will declare that spring has well and truly arrived at Hever Castle this April.

Head Gardener, Neil Miller, a fan of bold bright colours, has selected a palette for 2022 that celebrates spring in all its glory and heralds the start of warmer days to come. 

Throughout Tulip Celebrations, you’ll be able to join daily garden tours led by Hever Castle’s gardening team or enjoy a self-guided trail following the map. Plus, Woodland Walk* (just off Lake Walk) will be open so that an additional 25 acres of outside space is available to you.

Head into the Castle and you will see wonderful floral displays in selected rooms that simply enhance the beauty of the historic Castle.

For an extra special visit, learn how to make an eco-friendly, seasonal hand tied arrangement with one of Hever Castle’s previous gardeners, Emma Fuller-Wilke. Everything will be provided for you and Emma will guide you from start to finish so you can leave with a gorgeous arrangement as photographed below.

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

Finally, once you have worked up an appetite walking around the gardens, enjoy a variety of food options including Solley’s ice cream, homemade sandwiches and mouth-watering homemade cakes.
