Pashley Manor Tulip Festival
Thursday 3rd May 2018
2018 sees the 24th annual Tulip Festival at Pashley Manor Gardens. Over 40,000 bulbs in 112 varieties have been planted to create their largest tulip display yet.
Wander from elegant displays of white lily flowered and palest cream classic tulips planted around an old brick terrace, to the open space of sweeping herbaceous borders covered in a riot of reds and oranges surrounded by tendrils of bronze fennel, or romantic soft pink peony flowered blooms cloistered between red brick walls and pleached pear trees.
There is a café serving drinks and and homemade cakes which can be enjoyed on the terrace with views of the gardens.
Prior to our afternoon visit we shall stop in the seaside town of Hastings where there will be time to purchase lunch.
