The annual Tulip Festival at Burnby Hall Gardens, Pocklington is always a very popular event and provides a colourful and vibrant beginning to our new season. This year’s festival is being held from Saturday 20th April to Saturday 4th May.

Whilst best known for our impressive National Collection of over one hundred varieties of Hardy Water Lily, which bloom on the two ornamental lakes in the summer, the Tulip Festival attracts many thousands of visitors to Pocklington’s unique Gardens in the spring.

This year, there is a cascade of colours throughout the Gardens, featuring over 18,000 tulips, with over 130 varieties, which can be seen formally displayed in tubs and in the main flower beds across the site.

Once again, our tulip display has been planned by Jill Ward, Head Gardener, and is the culmination of months of preparation by herself and the gardening team at Burnby Hall Gardens. 

The Gardens are open between 10 am and 5.30 pm daily (with last entry at 4.30 pm).
