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 461 gardens.

In late spring and early summer, 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.


Important update

With the gradual easing of lockdown restrictions, gardens in the 2-for-1 directory are beginning to open.

To ensure the safety of visitors and staff, many have special measures in place, including pre-booking and limiting the number of visitors.

Before visiting a garden, please contact the garden directly to determine their opening status and any restrictions that may apply.

Please note: we’re unable to keep all individual 2-for-1 garden pages updated, but we will publish the latest details that we have on our weekly updates page from week commencing Monday 8 June, 2020.
