Burnby Hall Gardens, seven time consecutive winner of the prestigious Yorkshire in Bloom Gold Award, is hosting its fifth annual Tulip Festival from Saturday 28 April to Saturday 12 May.

While being best known for the 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 the venue’s unique gardens during Spring.

A profusion of colour will be on show during the fifth annual festival.

More than 14,000 tulips, comprising in excess of 30 varieties, will be on display.

These can be seen formally displayed in tubs throughout the gardens and in the numerous flower beds throughout the site, providing a cascade of colour and beauty for the spring.

A Burnby Hall Gardens spokesman said: “The Festival is once again being run in conjunction with the award-winning Bloms Bulbs, which achieved gold for its own tulip display at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2013.

“A beautiful and colourful way to enjoy a lovely spring day, the gardens will be open between 10am and 5.30pm daily (with last entry at 4.30pm).

The Tulip Festival starts on Saturday 28 April.
