Bowood House

 Bowood House and Gardens are now open daily between 11am & 6pm until 1st November 2015. We hope to see you soon. 

Welcome to Bowood House & Gardens, home of the Marquis and Marchioness of Lansdowne.  Bowood offers a fantastic day out in Wiltshire 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 Area.

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 70 acres.

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