11 May, 2pm & 3pm: Lilac Walk

There are over 250 varieties of lilac in Withdean Park and when they’re in bloom it’s one of the most beautiful places in Brighton.

The lilacs in Withdean Park were designated, in 1982, as the National Lilac Collection by the National Council for the Conservation of Plants and Gardens. However, it sadly lost this status in 2009 due to lack of funding and loss of the expertise to maintain the necessary documentation, propagation and upkeep.

The Friends of Withdean Park are working hard to maintain and to identify more of the 250+ types of lilac found in the park. When the lilacs are in bloom it is one of the most beautiful places to be in Brighton.

Meet at Withdean Park notice board on London Road, five minutes before each walk:
Withdean Park, Peacock Lane, BN1 8NA.

Limited to 20 people per walk.
