Bowood Gardens

Bowood Gardens in Wiltshire is home to a wide variety of speciality gardens, making for the perfect day out in Wiltshire for horticultural lovers. A special treat includes scheduled monthly Exclusive Tours of the Private Walled Gardens.

Bowood’s magnificent stately home stands within one of ‘Capability’ Brown’s most beautiful parks, with gently sloping lawns stretching down to the lake and distant views to the chalk downlands.  Delights within the park include the Cascade, Doric Temple, Terrace Gardens, Rhododendrons Walks and for children, the fantastic Adventure Playground.

The Bowood Gardens are one of the special glories of Bowood and an ideal day out in Wiltshire, encompassing almost every period of English garden design from the early Georgian period onwards. Enjoy a hot tea and coffee at The Treehouse Café after soaking up all the Estate’s history.

Unfortunately dogs are not permitted within the grounds of Bowood House & Gardens.
