Set against the stunning backdrop of Woburn Abbey, ‘The Gardener’s Garden Show’ offers visitors the best location of any show in the UK, taking place within the 42 acres of Abbey Gardens.

Arts and Horticulture

Join our Curator, Matthew Hirst, for a private view of the special bicentenary exhibition “Repton and the Russells”, which includes Repton’s Red Book for Woburn as the centrepiece of the exhibition. Following this private view Matthew will give a tour of the Holland Library in the Family’s apartments, culminating in a privileged viewing of some of the horticultural treasures in the Library collection. The 6th Duke of Bedford, Repton’s patron, also contributed to many significant plant collecting missions to the Americas and Europe, amassing over 600 new species for Woburn.  Many of these are 

recorded in specialist books he had published. These, together with rare and beautiful books of the 18th and 19th century will be on view during the tour.
