Woburn Abbey and Gardens has a beautiful building and stunning grounds to explore. There are 22 rooms to investigate, which are full of collections, including vaults of gold and silver!
Kids will love the unique 17th century undersea cavern, called The Grotto, carved to look like seaweed and stalactites, with a ceiling covered in shells.
The grounds contain some amazing gardens, plus a Chinese Dairy, a Hornbeam maze and the Cone House, which is a great viewing platform. There is also a Folly and Children's garden, a bog garden and a traditional kitchen garden. The Aviary and pavilion are worth a look too.
Still want more? Take a stroll around the extensive deer park, with 9 types of deer and over 1200 deer! Dogs are allowed to come (but not in the Abbey grounds or Gardens), provided they are kept on the lead.
It is worth checking online before you visit as a number of events are held here through the year such as classic car shows, a country fair and open air theatre, to name but few!
