Waterlily Festival at Sheffield Park and Garden

Sheffield Park and Garden

Sheffield Park, Near Uckfield, East Sussex

8th June 2019 - 14th July 2019

Sheffield Park's famous lakes burst with colour during June and July and, to celebrate, their hugely successful Waterlily Festival will return with a series of workshops, guided tours, installations and more.

Get a unique view of the elegant waterlilies by walking out onto the floating pontoon, or join guides as you absorb their wealth of knowledge on a free tour to the bottom of Pulham Falls waterfall; a viewpoint not normally open to visitors of the popular National Trust property.

Families and young explorers will have the opportunity to learn the secrets of these ancient and beautiful plants that are so perfectly adapted to their aquatic home. Plus look out for origami waterlily making and fabulous floating installations on the lake.

Or for those visitors inspired by the serene waterlilies, then why not take the opportunity to embrace your creative side? Limited tickets are still available via the Sheffield Park website for the Waterlily Lino Printing or Photography Workshops.

Don’t forget to stop by the plant sales area where you can buy waterlilies and other aquatic plants to take home for your garden pond, or head to the shop for a selection of gifts and waterlily souvenirs including our hugely popular and exclusive waterlily tea towel and art print.
