Walmer Castle and Gardens
Summer is approaching and our award winning gardens are entering their most beautiful season. Join us this June for a celebration of Walmer’s flowering borders, and enjoy all they have to offer.
Take a tour led by our gardening team and learn about the plantings in the stunning Broadwalk, Kitchen and Queen Mother’s gardens. Get inspiration for your own garden with advice from the Kent Plant Heritage Group, and pick up beautiful plants from local nurseries. Meet our resident apiarist for an expert bee-keeping demonstration, and admire artwork at the prize giving for the annual Walmer Castle childrens art competition. Take a break from roaming, grab a seat on the lawn and enjoy music by local bands, whilst the kids try our trails and take each other on in giant garden games.
With something for avid gardening enthusiasts and aspiring garden apprentices alike, visit our blooming gardens to indulge your green-fingered side and admire one of the finest and best maintained historic gardens in Kent!
Music on the Lawn at Blooming Gardens:
Saturday 16 June – Gypsy Jazz from local group the Barrett Brothers
Sunday 17 June – The lively sounds of Deal Brass Academy
