Refurbishment Project

Home of the 15th Duke and Duchess of Bedford, Woburn Abbey has been the principal family seat since the 1620s. Shaped by successive generations to adapt to changing family life and taste, the Abbey and Gardens are currently closed to facilitate a major refurbishment programme.

Having spent two years refurbishing Woburn Abbey, we continue to find challenges in the project. In order to make the building watertight for the next century we are now committed to reroofing the Abbey and therefore Woburn Abbey will remain closed until the spring of 2024.

We look forward to welcoming you back to enjoy The Abbey and its surroundings in due course, however, in the meantime the rest of the Estate including Woburn Safari Park, Woburn Golf Club and the Deer Park's footpaths remain open.
