Arundel Castle invites visitors to experience a tulip festival like no other.
Arundel Castle gardens Tulip Festival
Set against the breathtaking backdrop of Arundel Castle’s gardens, a sea of colour awaits with over 100,000 tulip bulbs planted by the castle’s award-winning Head Gardener, Martin Duncan, and his team.
This year the festival showcases over 120 different named tulips, with an array of colours and hues as the bulbs, which have been dormant underground throughout the winter, burst into bloom. For the first time in history, the castle’s iconic steep castle 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 bulbs to create a stunning feature, in celebration of King Charles III’s Coronation in May.
The Tulip Festival will take place during April and early May, but due to the unpredictability of when the bulbs will bloom, visitors are encouraged to check Arundel Castle’s social media channels or website to find out when the tulip display is ready to avoid disappointment.
