A field of more than 500,000 tulips is set to open in Sussex soon as part of a festival at Tulleys Farm.

Tulip Fest is set to open on Friday, March 29 and will be open on weekends up until the end of April as well as some weekdays in that period.

More than 100 varieties of tulips have been planted for this which are a mixture of early bloomers, mid-season and late-season types.

On the Tulleys Farm website, it says: "Each tulip variety offers a distinct burst of colour, shape, and size, together creating a stunning, picturesque landscape.

"But these tulips are more than just a feast for the eyes. They represent the heart and soul of our 4th generation family farm. Every bulb is carefully tended to and ready for picking straight from our fields.

"As you meander through this floral haven, you're not just observing beauty, you're experiencing a taste of Holland."

Tickets for the festival are available to purchase over on the Tulleys Farm website here.
