Woburn Abbey Gardens
Woburn Abbey Gardens
Some of you may know that since the Woburn Luminaris Events at Woburn Abbey I am taking the seasonal photos of the Abbey Gardens. Not only am I very proud to have been asked to photograph them, I love doing it.
Woburn Abbey Gardens have been designed by Humphrey Repton, Sir Jeffrey Wyattville, Percey Cane and Henry Holland. Highlights are the Chinese Dairy, the Hornbeam Maze, the Bog Garden and the Rockery plus Pavilion. But there is so much more to explore, and I still find new spots to see and photograph.
The Gardens are beautiful to every Season. So you can understand that my camera is running hot. In Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter (fingers crossed for snow this December), the Gardens showing them self in a beautiful light every single time.
It even brings out the gardener in me, trying to create a little paradise in my back garden. Well trying, I don't really have green fingers :)
So hopefully you already know about the Gardens, if not, make sure you visit them next time you are in Woburn, Bedfordshire. And don't forget the famous Afternoon Tea was originated here at the Abbey, by Duchess Anna Maria in the 1840s. So stop by at the cafe!

Woburn Abbey, near Woburn/Bedfordshire, England, is a country house and the seat of the Duke of Bedford. Woburn Abbey was originally founded as a Cistercian abbey in 1145. Taken from its monastic residents by Henry VIII and given to John Russell, 1st Earl of Bedford in 1547, it became the seat of the Russell Family and the Dukes of Bedford. The Abbey was largely rebuilt starting in 1744 by the architects Henry Flitcroft and Henry Holland for the 4th Duke.
Duchess Anna Maria, originated the afternoon tea ritual in 19th-century England.
The art collection of the Duke of Bedford, is amongst the finest in private hands, and encompasses a wide range of western artwork. The holdings, comprise some 250 paintings, including works by Rubens, Van Dyck, Canaletto (24 paintings (View of the Entrance to the Venetian Arsenal, c. 1732 - one of Canaletto's greatest works)) and Velasquez.
