The rolling fields of colourful tulips bloom every year and become a social media sensation during April and May

When asked to imagine a field of tulips, visions of swathes of the flower in a Dutch field, meticulously lined according to colour might enter your mind. But you needn't look further than King's Lynn to see a breathtaking kaleidoscope of the colourful flower as it is home to its own tulip fields.

The flowers bloom from late April and adorn the field with pinks, purples, yellows, reds and more vibrant hues that are particular to tulips.
