Spend a glorious summer day exploring the private gardens at Badminton House at its latest open day on Sunday 16 June 2024.

The grand South Gloucestershire estate, which is home to the Duke and Duchess of Beaufort, opens its grounds to the public just three times a year — with the summer open day giving visitors the rare opportunity to get a glimpse of the gardens in their June splendour.

With displays of roses and borders of summer colours throughout, an outing to Badminton Estate’s gardens promises to be a unique experience with something new to discover at every turn.

Enjoy roaming through the park to the walled garden, with its archway adorned with flowers that runs the full length of the garden; explore the south garden, a tranquil space featuring water squares and luscious hedges; or admire the blossoming formal beds designed by landscape architect, Russell Page.

What’s more, visitors can purchase their own plants from a selection of stalls and enjoy food and drink from The Knead Bakery, Wild Pizza Company and Marshfield ice cream.

This year, there's also the chance to see a Cotswolds botanical art exhibition, showcasing never-before-seen historic paintings.

Please note, dogs are not allowed in the private gardens, but can go into the park at Badminton on a short lead.
