for Riot of Rhododendrons as your favourite British event.

Mid March – Mid June – Riot of Rhododendrons Although wonderful to explore at any time of year, spring is when Muncaster gardens are at their best and the month of May is the peak of the flowering season. Don’t expect neat borders and regimented ranks of bedding plants; this wild, woodland garden will surprise and delight with banks of colour cascading down the hillsides and ravines surrounding Muncaster. Flowering camellias, magnolias and native wild daffodils abound in March but as April turns to May rhododendrons and azaleas are a riot of colour throughout the 77 acres of gardens.
