Annual Tulip Festival at Arundel Castle

Be wowed by over 36,000 beautiful tulips in the enchanting gardens of Arundel Castle in West Sussex.

10 April 2017 – 10 May 2017 | Visit website

This spring, visitors to Arundel Castle can expect to be wowed by all things bright and beautiful as the unique Annual Tulip Festival returns from mid-April to early May.

The impressive medieval building - celebrating the 950th anniversary of its initial construction this year - will be complemented by vibrant arrays of over 70 different types of tulips, some of which visitors may never have seen before. New for 2017 is the beautiful White Dream tulip which sits among striking black flowers known as Queen of Nights within the English Herbaceous Borders.

Aside from the gardens, Arundel Castle’s bumper calendar of events also includes the hugely popular International Jousting and Medieval Tournament which sees knights battle it out on horseback during 25-30 July. Brand-new event Warriors of Arundel Castle on 8 April will bring key moments of the Castle’s fascinating 950-year history to life through costume, crafts and combat displays. Green-fingered enthusiasts should also take time to visit during May and June when eruptions of brightly-coloured, pom-pom headed Alliums explode into flower and tower above neighbouring plants as part of the Allium Extravaganza.  

Just an hour and a half from London by train, Arundel Castle gardens are open 10am-5pm, Tuesday to Sunday, Mondays in August and Bank Holiday Mondays. Tickets start from £11. The annual Tulip Festival runs until early May.
