Testimonials

"The Abbey and gardens looked splendid in the spring sunshine and together with the knowledgeable guides, Woburn Abbey and Gardens is truly one of Britain`s gems. As an upscale, experience tour provider, we highly recommend this as a must see attraction."

Ranjiv Bhalla, Director, Vesperience Ltd ‘The Experience Company’

 

"Wow !! What an amazing day at Woburn Abbey and Gardens. I had never imagined how much Woburn has to offer …it really has something for everyone with the wonderful stories , the beautiful gardens  and of course the deer! The guides were fantastic, Jane really brought the house to life with a story for every room and the lives of those who have lived there intermingled with just the right amount of History for us to take in! …I was especially fascinated with the flying Duchess…what an amazing lady! The rooms are stunning …especially the grotto..and all that treasure in the crypt!! Martin’s enthusiasm for returning the gardens to Humphry Repton’s ‘red Book ‘ vision was amazing , the gardens themselves are lovely and Martin brings his passion for every area to the group so that we were left wanting to return to see how the garden develops through the seasons …I was intrigued by the Chinese Dairy…it has a lovely story as does the Children’s castle with all its magic!" 

Mandy Keating, Product Development Manager, Diamond Holidays.

"It was lovely to view the house with such a knowledgeable guide and Martin’s tour of the gardens really brought them to life.  I don’t think I’ll ever forget how to tell the difference between the different types of cedar.  I will certainly be recommending that my groups include either a lunch an afternoon tea in their package as they are such value for money." 

Eileen Clark, RB Travel

 

"I had a wonderful day experiencing the Abbey, Sculpture room, Chinese a Dairy, Camellia house Duchess’ tea room, with a delicious lunch and superb afternoon tea (the best I have ever tasted, in the Lantern room. The weather was perfect and company was too. I managed to have a chat with everyone which was also nice finding out what they did. I had a lovely day and the food and hospitality was second to none. All the Staff were very friendly and obliging."

Jane Brewer, Event Organiser, MBDA UK Sports & Social Club (Stevenage) Ltd

 

"I had a wonderful and productive day at Woburn Abbey. I learnt a lot - both about the history of the house and gardens and about the various things they offer to their clients. Lisa had a lot of helpful advice about the logistics of bringing large groups, as well as ways of making their day extra special. All in all I was sold, and I look forward to many fruitful years of working together! "

Jamie Cherrington, Oxford Royale Academy

 

"It was very useful to attend the Tour Guide Event of Woburn Abbey & Gardens; it’s so valuable from our perspective to know what a visit would entail for our guests and it also puts my mind at rest to know that I am inviting guests to a worthwhile and enjoyable experience."
