              A chance to explore the gardens of the historic Badminton House,                            home of the Duke and Duchess of Beaufort.


The beautiful gardens of Badminton House are only  open three times a year in April, June and September. Visitors can witness the seasonal changes of the gardens starting with tulips in the spring, Roses in June & late summer in September. 



There is a great variety of plants to view, from the formal beds on the east side of the house, designed by Russell Page, to the South Garden with its water squares, hedges, beds and borders. The Walled Garden, a short stroll from the house through the park, is home to the Badminton House kitchen garden, providing fruit and vegetables as well as cut flowers for much of the year. An archway, running the full width of the garden, is covered with roses, clematis, wisteria and yellow laburnum. The greenhouse is used for propagation and houses a fine display of pelargoniums. 




There will be a selection of plant and flower sellers, plus food and drink available from a range of stalls.
