The Woburn Values

Heritage, Innovative, Community, Excellence and Integrity

At Woburn Abbey Gardens it is always our aim to ensure that the visitor experience includes our five core values. Here are some of the many ways in which we use them within the gardens:

Heritage -  To preserve and recreate the gardens based on Humphry Repton's designs and raise awareness of the contributions the Dukes of Bedford have made to horticulture.

Innovative - To develop new garden features, such as The Bog Garden, and to constantly review and benchmark our work across Woburn Abbey Gardens to improve and enhance your visitor experience.

Community - To interact with our visitors through our talks, tours and Come & Grow sessions, as well as work as a team within the local community around Woburn.

Excellence - By achieving RHS Partner Garden status and through awards we have been nominated for and won, such as the Hudson Heritage Award in 2012.

Integrity - To always aim to provide a garden experience that offers quality, education and enjoyment.
