Bowood House & Gardens

Bowood House & Gardens 2-for-1 entry

Get one free entry with one full-paying adult, with your Gardeners’ World Magazine 2-for-1 entry card. Valid at 392 gardens.

Through May and June, the Italian- inspired terrace gardens in front of the house are full of colour, with alliums, tulips, pelargoniums and roses, as well as climbers on the walls. Take a walk along the richly planted east border and enjoy views across the lake to the temple in the distance. This elegant Capability Brown landscape is a flowing mix of woodland and sweeping lawns, leading down to a sinuous mile-long man-made lake.

Check before you travel

Before setting off check the garden’s website or call direct, as opening details can vary and one-off restrictions may apply.

We advise checking the garden’s own website or calling them direct to ensure the published details are accurate, as opening times and restrictions may vary.

Always take your 2 for 1 card with you

Some gardens have pre-booking systems in place – take your 2 for 1 card with you to validate your booking.

If a garden offers both pre-booking and walk-up options, we recommend booking prior to your visit to avoid disappointment should the garden be busy.

Please don’t make multiple pre-bookings or share your 2 for 1 card – card misuse will invalidate your discount claim at the garden.
