Tulips Have Bloomed at Hampton Court Flower Fest

This was first introduced to the British Isles in 1630s and with around 100 species, tulip planting at the palace dates back to the reign of Queen Mary II.

Over 100,000 bulbs have bloomed in spectacular displays across the regal gardens, in tribute to the estate’s long royal history of tulip cultivation.

From April 12 – May 3 visitors can visit the different types of tulip that have not been on show at the palace since the 17th century, as part of the Historic Royal Palaces partnership with a bulb garden in the Netherlands.

Ten different heritage and modern types of the flower have been planted, including Parrot, Triumph, Rembrandt and Darwin tulips.
