WOBURN ABBEY

Exclusively British - - BEST OF BRITISH FLOWER SHOWS -

Orig­i­nally a 12th cen­tury monastery, Woburn Abbey has been trans­formed over the cen­turies into the im­pres­sive build­ing it is to­day. For one week­end in June, the home of the Duke and Duchess of Bed­ford is the set­ting for this pop­u­lar gar­den show. Wan­der around the se­lec­tion of nurs­eries and stands sell­ing ar­ti­san prod­ucts. There’s a food hall packed with delicious treats and pop along to the ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion with gar­den ex­perts from TV and ra­dio. Over the last decade or so the Abbey’s gar­dens have un­der­gone a ma­jor restora­tion re­turn­ing them to the orig­i­nal plans of Humphrey Rep­ton, a 19th cen­tury land­scape de­signer – join a free guided tour with one of the gar­den­ers to find out more. 24–25 June, » woburn­abbey.co.uk
