Group Visits

Bowood House with tulips


We are delighted to welcome groups to visit and enjoy all that Bowood has to offer.  From the beautiful Bowood House, home to the Lansdowne family for over 250 years and home to a unique collection of historical artefacts to beautiful “Capability” Brown designed parkland, gardens spanning every era of garden design and the remarkable beauty of the Rhododendron Gardens.

Exclusive Tours of Lord and Lady Lansdowne’s Private Walled Gardens are also available.

Dedicated group catering is also available in the recently refurbished Bowood House Restaurant for groups of 20 or more. We would be happy to arrange morning coffee and biscuits, a two course lunch or afternoon tea. Catering must be pre-booked at least two weeks in advance of your group visit.

Alternatively the Temple Gate Coffee Shop is open every day serving hearty hot meals and freshly made sandwiches as well as delicious homemade cakes and biscuits from 10.30am to 5pm.

For groups of 20 or more we can tailor your visit to your requirements and can arrange catering and disabled access for coaches.

To help you promote your visit we can send you leaflets as well as supply you with information and stunning images to use.

We would also be happy to arrange a familiarisation trip for you.

Coach drivers receive complimentary access to Bowood House and Gardens and a lunch voucher to be redeemed in the Temple Gate Coffee Shop.
