The Original Garden Visitor's Guide

Woburn Abbey Gardens

In 1805, the 6th Duke of Bedford commissioned the famous landscape gardener, Humphry Repton, to create designs to enhance the Gardens and Deer Park for his family, friends and guests to enjoy. Following many changes over the 200 years since, our Gardens Team are now working to restore Repton’s original plans.

Come to Woburn and experience our variety of elegant horticultural designs. Explore our woodland glades and wild biodiversity areas and meet the birds in our Aviary. Discover the Camellia House, Cone House and romantic Folly and see what’s growing in our Kitchen Garden. Make sure to visit the Chinese Dairy, the earliest structure of its kind in the UK.

Events include Woburn Abbey Garden Show (25th-26th June 2016), Luminaries Woburnensis and a variety of horticultural study days throughout the year. Come as a group and book a tour guided by one of Woburn’s expert gardeners. There are a variety of subjects to choose.
