Sunday 12 July 2020 is the one day of the year that the Duke and Duchess of Beaufort will be opening up the private gardens of Badminton House to members of the public – with a limited number of tickets available for the annual Open Gardens events.
Horticultural fans across Gloucestershire will be delighted at the news, as the original Badminton House Open Gardens date was postponed due to Coronavirus.
The beautiful Cotswold gardens include formal beds on the east side of the house, designed by Russell Page, with water squares, hedges, beds and borders to the south.
Other highlights include the glorious displays of roses and borders of soft summer colours with herbaceous perennials including tulips, campanulas, penstemons, geraniums, phlox and anemones.
There’s also a stunning walled garden a short stroll from Badminton House with an archway, which runs the full length of the garden, covered with roses, clematis, wisteria and yellow laburnum.
With tickets costing just £5 for adults, refreshments on sale and plenty of free car parking – this is not only a rare chance to explore the grounds of these exquisite Cotswold gardens, but a great opportunity to meet up and get outdoors with friends and family in your bubble.
Strict social distancing measures have been put in place by organisers at this outdoor event, with visitor numbers limited and ticket booking essential for all.
