The gardens at the National Trust’s Wimpole Estate are always a joy, but this month, with some 180,000 bulbs springing into bloom, they’ll be truly awe-inspiring.
From delicate pinky purple gladioli byzantinus and the striking yellow of foxtail lilies through to the purple haze of alliums and the beautiful star-like camasias, there will be plenty to admire across the 12 acres. If you need a helping hand identifying what’s what, join a weekly guided garden tour, or pick up a spotter sheet.
Round off your day with tea and cake at The Old Rectory Restaurant. Heavenly! The gardens are open all month, 10am-5pm.
