Bowood House and Gardens is now closed for the 2013 season and will re-open at 11am on the 1st April for the 2014 season.
Welcome to Bowood House & Gardens, home of the Marquis and Marchioness of Lansdowne. Bowood offers a fantastic day out for all the family. Famous for one of the UK’s most extensive Adventure Playgrounds, children are guaranteed the time of their lives. Younger children will enjoy meeting friendly farm animals at Tractor Ted’s Little Farm and undercover fun in the Soft Play Palace.
The whole family can relax in 100 acres of beautiful parkland, designed by ‘Capability’ Brown, offering a lake, arboretum, pinetum and cascade. Perfect for walks and exploring. Or visit Bowood House which hosts a wealth of unique items from Queen Victoria’s wedding chair to Napoleon’s death mask and an extensive art collection.
During the spring (late April to early June) visit the stunning Rhododendron Walks, this woodland oasis offers breathtaking vistas of colour covering over 60 acres.
