Visitors will flock to the private gardens of the historic badminton house – the home of the Duke and Duchess of Beaufort – next Sunday.
The beautiful gardens usually only open once a year, but after the success of low-key openings in 2020, the staff are happy to announce that we will be running three open days this year.
Two dates confirmed so far are:
Summer Open Sunday 13th June, 10am-4pm – tickets available now, click Here
Late Summer Open Sunday 5th September – Tickets Available Soon
Admission is £7.50 per adult. Children under 12 are free but still need a ticket.
Tickets are not required for children in strollers or in the arms.
Tickets must be booked in advance, access without a ticket will not be granted.
When you book a ticket, you will be asked to select an hour and then an arrival time that is set in five minute increments.
There is a great variety of plants to see, 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. Gorgeous displays of roses and soft summer color borders are combined with herbaceous perennials, gambanula, wintergreen, geranium, and phlox.
A short stroll from the house through the park, The Walled Garden is home to the Badminton House Kitchen Garden, providing fruit and vegetables as well as cut flowers most of the year.
A walkway extending the entire width of the garden, covered with roses, clematis, wisteria and yellow milk.
The greenhouse is used for reproduction and has an impressive display of pelargonium.

There is ample parking in the badminton house’s garden. Disabled or elderly visitors can park in the front disabled parking area.
The majority of parks are wheelchair accessible for those with mobility issues. An accessible toilet is provided.
A selection of refreshments will be available on the day.
There are no dogs in private parks. Well-behaved dogs on short leads are allowed in the park. (Service, Support, and Medicaid dogs may go anywhere)
Measures will be taken to ensure the safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers on the day. We politely ask that these procedures be respected and adhered to at all times.
Tickets for this year’s events will be issued in order to manage visitor numbers and evenly distribute visitors throughout the day.
Since there has been a mixture of good and bad weather over recent weeks, if we have a particularly unfavorable weather forecast for the weekend, staff may make the decision
to cancel. If this is the case, you will be notified by email and your ticket fee will be refunded. Staff will continue to move forward with light rain or changing conditions.
