Woburn garden show

The Woburn Abbey Garden Show, due to take place on the 24th and 25th June at Woburn Abbey, has announced that group rates are available.  

Available for parties of 12 or more people, the group ticket includes discounted entry, a meet and greet, refreshment vouchers for coach drivers, and add-on options of talks and guided tours.

What can groups do at the garden show? 

The Woburn Abbey Garden Show, which will take place across 28 acres of the abbey gardens, will provide visitors with an introduction to gardening as well as the opportunity to learn new gardening skills.

This year’s talks, demonstrations and question and answers sessions will be presented by Pippa Greenwood, a regular writer for BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine and RHS ambassador, alongside BBC Gardeners’ World presenter Adam Frost.

There will also be a chance to purchase a mix of plants and garden items. A food hall with various stalls from local suppliers, and live entertainment is also to be expected.

More for groups 

Woburn Abbey is the historic home of the Earls and Dukes of Bedford, and has been for nearly 400 years. There are more than 250 works of art displayed throughout the house, with more than 20 rooms for visitors to access. 

The abbey offers a variety of group packages that involve afternoon teas and guided tours.

Bespoke visits can also be arranged for groups wanting to gain something particular out of their trips.

Groups can learn about Woburn’s history, which saw imprisonments and executions, as well as love affairs, political reform and royal visits.

Visitors can explore the house, gardens and enjoy lunch in The Duchess’ Tea Room.
