Group Visits 2018
1st April – 1st November 2018
Whether you’re a tour operator, special interest group or planning to visit with friends and family, we have a variety of tours and packages at Bowood House & Gardens.
Bowood House & Gardens
Enjoy a beautiful day visiting Lord and Lady Lansdowne’s family home, surrounded by acres of ‘Capability’ Brown landscape and stunning gardens. Bowood House has been the home of the Lansdowne family since the 1st Earl of Shelburne purchased in 1754.
Since then, the house has seen huge changes. From the 2nd Earl beginning major improvements using the then, renowned architect Robert Adam, who worked on the interiors including creating the beautiful Orangery, to the ‘Large House’ being demolished after the second World War when it fell in to disrepair.
The collection of art and many historical treasures, such as Napoleaon’s death mask, Queen Victoria’s wedding chair and the laboratory in which Dr. Joseph Priestley identified oxygen gas, provides interest for all tastes.
