About Bowood House & Gardens

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 Napoleons death mask and an extensive art and antique collection.

Your children can't miss out on South West's largest Adventure Playground with its life-size Pirate Ship and aerial walkways, several thrilling slides, a huge scramble net and perhaps the most famous and popular of all, the space dive with an exhilarating 19 foot vertical drop! As you can imagine the adventure playground is responsible for hours of excitement and fun.
