A FIELD in the UK looks just like a top European tourist attraction – but tickets for this summer are already sold out.
A colorful garden in the market town of King’s Lynn resembles one of the Netherlands’ most famous landmarks.
Described by visitors as “beautiful” and “absolutely stunning,” King’s Lynn is home to an Instagram-worthy field of tulips.
For just two weeks in April and May, Norfolk Tulips opens its doors to guests wanting to experience a taste of the UK’s Dutch countryside.
In recent years, day trippers have taken to social media to share their experiences of visiting the bright fields.
Adriana Neptuna posted a video on TikTok about her recent trip to the tulip fields.
In the video, she said: “There are rows of tulips of all colors as far as the eye can see. They only flower for a few weeks each year.”
Holidaymakers also rave about the tulip fields in Norfolk on Instagram.
One person wrote: “The Norfolk Tulips were spectacular.”
Another added: “Being surrounded by thousands of tulips is beyond words.”
Norfolk Tulips is a two and a half hour drive from London.
But the site can be reached by taking a direct train from London Kings Cross to Kings Lynn station in Norfolk, where day-trippers can catch a taxi to the gardens.
We found return train tickets for £45 for a full paying adult who does not have a rail card.
Tickets are £5 and all proceeds go to Norfolk Hospice.
But this year’s tickets are already sold out – while a total of 15,000 tickets went on sale, they sold out in under an hour.
In a statement published in the Eastern Daily Press, the Norfolk Hospice Tapping House said: “Thank you to everyone who bought tickets, the response has been extremely overwhelming.
“Over 80,000 people have tried to buy tickets and unfortunately we can’t accommodate everyone.”
If you are still trying to find tickets online, you need to be careful as fake tickets have been found circulating.
Norfolk Hospice Tapping House added: “We have been made aware of people trying to resell their tickets. Please be careful who you buy tickets from as some of these people are scammers.”
These aren’t the only fields in Britain where Brits can visit blooming seasonal flowers.
The small market town of Hitchin has been associated with a French holiday hotspot for a number of years.
Hitchin Lavender has been dubbed ‘Little Provence’ by visitors and it’s easy to see why.
