Warkworth may be a small village but it packs a punch, cosseted by seven picturesque hills.

The annual event that takes place on the Millennium Lilac Trail, attracting “a multitude of visitors from all over the province.”

If you’re a flower lover then you’re going to want to check it out as there are many rare lilacs of multiple varieties to see!

The lilacs are planted strategically in beds along the trail turning it into a showcase of blooms – a perfect place to stroll around and snap some photos.

There’s most than just lilacs to enjoy though.

Stunning trails of lilacs, music, food, what more could you ask for?
