Woburn Abbey Garden Show 2017


10am - 6pm (5pm last entry)

After the huge success of the 2016 Garden Show this June we are pleased to announce that tickets can now be purchased for the 8th Woburn Abbey Garden Show taking place on 24th and 25th June 2017. 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. 

Whether you are an enthusiastic horticulturist or you’re looking for inspiration, you’ll have an informative day out at the Woburn Abbey Garden Show. Enjoy an introduction to gardening, the opportunity to hone or learn new skills and purchase unique plants and garden items.

This year's talks, demonstrations and Q&A sessions will be presented by Pippa Greenwood, a regular writer and blogger for BBC Gardeners' World Magazine and RHS Ambassador and BBC Gardeners' World presenter Adam Frost, as well as a number of other horticultural experts.
