Hole Park

'Bluebell Barometer' - Level 4 (updated 22 April - 21:00)

Large swathes of the bluebells are now in full flower whilst in some areas further blooms will continue to emerge.  The bluebell woods are looking wonderful now, so don't delay in coming to see them.  Peak bloom is due in a few days time.

Visitors on the woodland walk can also enjoy the large swaths of shimmering silver white wild garlic in Garlic Valley.

Our barometer index scale marked 1-4 gives visitors up to date information on how the bluebells are progressing.

Over the last few seasons the peak date for the bluebells at Hole Park has been as follows:

2009      24 April

2010      3   May

2011      20 April

2012      29 April

2013      3   May

2014      17 April 


If you plan to Visit Kent in spring please note Hole Park Gardens will be open to visitors from 14 March 2015.
