Welcome to Woburn Abbey which has been the Russell’s family home since the early 17th century, and ours since December 2002. We hope you will enjoy exploring the beauty and history of The Abbey and its treasures, collected by our ancestors, who were as passionate as we are to share this experience with you. There is always something new happening in the house as we discover more about its history, so join us and be part of Woburn’s ongoing story.
