Held between April and early May, the festival is regarded as one of the top tulip displays in Europe, and is set against the breath-taking backdrop of the castle's gardens.
A sea of colour awaits as the festival showcases over 120 different named tulips planted by the castle’s award-winning Head Gardener, Martin Duncan, and his team. This year’s festival is set to feature over 100,000 tulips, creating a stunning display of colour and beauty as the bulbs, which have been dormant underground throughout the winter, burst into bloom .
The festival will feature an array of tulips, including Purple Passional, White Triumphator, Angelique, Madame Lefeber, Curley Sue, and Flaming Spring Green to name but a few. Plus, for the first time in history, the castle’s iconic steep bank has been planted with more than 10,000 Oxford red tulips, while the labyrinth has been planted with over 14,000 King’s Blood tulips to create a stunning feature, in celebration of the King Charles III’s Coronation in May.
