    Bowood is the perfect place to enjoy a picnic

Bowood House and Gardens are now closed for the season and will re-open on 27th March 2015. Thank you for those of you who have visited this season and we look forward to seeing you again in 2015.

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 60 acres.
