The Fireworks of The Garden

Woburn Abbey Gardens come alive in the summer. The herbaceous borders are known as “the fireworks of the garden” with all their colour. Take a wonder along the Long Borders and take in the beautiful colours and smells from a variety of blooms. Spot some of the bees and butterflies who are particularly attracted to this part of the gardens at this time of year.

Pack A Picnic

Summer is the perfect season to come prepared with a picnic to enjoy at one of the many benches around the gardens. Or why not call in at The Duchess' Tea Room and enjoy your refreshments on their terrace?
