Typical British at the Keukenhof


Keukenhof is always worth a visit from April until end of May. In the 32 hectares park you can admire 7 million tulips, daffodils and hyacinths (and many more!).

This weekend (27th and 28th of April) you could enjoy a very British Keukenhof. Listening to bagpipes and poems, visiting a real double decker poetry bus from London and a British guard: you could immerse into this culture.

The theme of this year at Keukenhof includes the exhibition “My Great Garden” – an indoor flower show in a typically British environment and the flower mosaic depicting Big Ben and Tower Bridge.

The mosaic mesasures 13 by 22 metres and has been created from almost 60,000 flower bulbs.

In the Juliana Pavilion, the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) stages a beautiful exhibition about English gardens.

From Saturday 27th April until Monday 29th April you can watch the set up of the mosaic of the portrait with Queen Beatrix and the new King Willem-Alexander between the Willem-Alexander pavilion and the Oranje Nassau pavilion. It will be officially opened on Monday the 29th of April at 11h.

The Keukenhof is open until 20 May 2013 from 8-19.30 (ticket office closes at 18h): Stationsweg 166-A, 2161 AM Lisse.
