Historic House Series – Woburn Abbey

Talk by Viv Haxby

Viv Haxby, blue badge Guide and Club Member talks about Woburn Abbey – the family home of the Duke and Duchess of Bedford. The house and gardens are now closed to undergo a major refurbishment programme, re-opening to visitors spring 2021.

There are 28 acres of award-winning historic gardens. When the 6th Duke inherited Woburn he commissioned Humphry Repton to produce designs to improve the gardens and park.
