Bowood House & Gardens

Home of the Marquis and Marchioness of Lansdowne

Discover the rich and fascinating history of Bowood House and the Lansdowne family, set within 100 acres of beautifully landscaped ‘Capability’ Brown Parkland.

Surrounding the Georgian House is the Italian-inspired Terrace Garden, the Private Walled Gardens and the herbaceous border, all radiating colour throughout the seasons. Explore the arboretum with its vast collection of trees leading down to the magnificent mile long lake.

Children will be entertained for hours, with the adrenaline-fuelled Adventure Playground featuring a life size pirate ship to a soft play area for the younger children. A hop, skip and a jump away is Tractor Ted Little Farm with a barn full of friendly farm animals.

Open daily until 4th November 2018, 11:00am – 6:00pm last admissions at 5:00pm.
