You can take in the scenery as you drive through on your way to the Abbey and Gardens or enjoy a walk on one of the public footpaths. Dogs are allowed in the Deer Park but must be kept on a lead at all times as they can endanger the deer and themselves.

The Woburn Abbey Deer Park was established before 1661 and was home to herds of Red Deer and Fallow Deer. The 11th Duke of Bedford had a keen interest in zoology and collected over 42 other species to add to these previously established herds at the end of the 19th century.
