Humphry Retpon, the Landscape Gardener who designed many of the historic features within the Abbey Gardens will take children on a discovery tour. Kids find out about wildlife, plants and garden features and they finish off with becoming a garden designer themselves, designing a garden feature they would like to add to the Woburn Abbey Gardens.

In addition enjoy some nature crafts in the Gardens, create a creature from things you find around the gardens.

Both trails and crafts are at no extra cost and are included in the entry price.

Plenty of reasons to enjoy a great day out with the family at Woburn Abbey and Gardens during half term!
