120,000 bulbs, 60 varieties, 1 iconic palace
This spring sees the return of our annual Tulip Festival, which will fill the courtyards and gardens of Hampton Court Palace with over 120,000 tulips - the biggest Tulip Festival in the UK!
Tulips have always been synonymous with spring, heralding the start of the warmer days to come. Why not take a stroll around the gardens and immerse yourself in the spectacular displays of flourishing blooms?
This year's spectacular event will feature over 60 rare, historic and specialist varieties inspired by Mary ll's famous 17th century collection at Hampton Court Palace. You will be greeted by a sea of tulips across the palace gardens, including breath-taking floating tulips vases in the fountains. Pick up your free Tulip Festival guide to find out more about individual varieties and the history of tulips at the palace.
