Deer Tours - Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th October 2021

Join the Deer Keepers for an hour and a half tour of the Woburn Abbey Deer Reserve where you will able to get up close to the beautiful deer.

In groups of up to 12 people, you will be guided by two of our experienced and knowledgeable deer keepers, who will tell you more about these deer, their habitat and behaviours whilst taking you off-road across the Deer Reserve.

October is also the breeding season (the rut) for many species, with dramatic clashes between stags to win dominant control of their herds. For you to encounter these magnificent animals as close up as possible, the deer keepers will take you into areas of the Deer Reserve closed to the public.

This is the perfect opportunity for keen photographers to take the ultimate picture.

Tours will go ahead in all but the worst weather. Please wear suitable outdoor clothing and footwear and remember to bring your own camera and binoculars.
