One of the lovely things about blogging with Riverhill Himalayan Gardens is having an excuse to visit frequently and watch the seasons continually unfold! Riverhill is an amazing location, and having blogged about some of their forthcoming events I had to pop down and see their bluebell festival myself!
Bluebell Heaven at Riverhill Gardens
My children had an extra day off from school last week (their school was closed as it was being used as a polling station), so we decided to head to Riverhill for a morning of fun! We arrived as the gardens were opening and it was peaceful, quiet and the early morning light was simply beautiful!
After a quick drink and snack in their café we decided to head straight for the woodland walks and hoped we’d still be able to catch a little bluebell magic! We weren’t disappointed, and although the bluebells had probably been at their best a week or two before, we were quickly rewarded with glorious carpets of colour which were simply breath-taking!
There is always so much to see at Riverhill, and there was also plenty of blossom to admire, an absolutely stunning magnolia by the walled garden, and a very tantalising glimpse of some of the many rhododendrons starting to come into flower! We’re already planning our next visit, which might involve a little Yeti spotting! We’re big fans of the yeti, ever since we read Yeti and the Bird!
The walled garden at Riverhill is one of our favourite areas, and during their season they have some wonderful performances there. The next one is Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ and the ‘beautifully British and bonkers’ cycling Handlebards will be performing in The Walled Garden itself. Tickets are £15 for adults and £10 for children, you can purchase tickets here.
People possibly forget that Riverhill is a truly spectacular venue for theatre and music, possibly one of the most unique venues in Kent.
Have you visited Riverhill? If you have I’d love to hear from you! I’ll be sharing more Riverhill photos on my Instagram feed – Muff and Teacake.
