Hever Tulip Celebrations
with Afternoon Tea
Friday 26th April 2019
£39.00 All seats
Spanning more than 700 years, the history of Hever Castle is rich and varied. The original medieval defensive castle, with its gatehouse and walled bailey, was built in 1270. In the 15th and 16th centuries it was the home of one of the most powerful families in the country, the Boleyns, who added the Tudor dwelling within the walls.
As spring takes hold across the county, over 20,000 tulips are in full bloom, in this third year of the Hever Tulip Festival. The Italian Garden at Hever 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 and there are floral arrangements in the Castle.
Our trip today includes admission to the Castle and Gardens, a Garden tour plus an afternoon tea of mini-scones, cream, jam and a choice of tea or coffee.
