Woburn Abbey and Gardens will now open a year later than planned. The extended works to refurbish the site have pushed back the opening to spring 2022. Its garden show has also been postponed as a result and will now take place on 25 and 26 June 2022.
The historic family home and award-winning gardens are currently closed to visitors as the site undergoes its biggest refurbishment since it was first opened to the public in 1955.
Woburn Abbey and Gardens has been recognised as a 2020 Travelers’ Choice award-winner for Best Visitor Attraction. Based on a full year of Tripadvisor reviews, prior to any changes caused by the pandemic, award winners are known for consistently receiving great visitor feedback, placing them in the top 10% of hospitality businesses around the globe.
“Winners of the 2020 Travelers’ Choice Awards should be proud of this distinguished recognition,” says Kanika Soni, chief commercial officer at Tripadvisor. “Although it’s been a challenging year for travel and hospitality, we want to celebrate our partners’ achievements. Award winners are beloved for their exceptional service and quality. Not only are these winners well deserving, they are also a great source of inspiration for visitors as the world begins to venture out again.”
