Boughton Gardens to open with National Garden Scheme on Sunday 1st October

For one day only this autumn, the gardens and parkland of Boughton House will open to the public in aid of the National Garden Scheme. The gardens will open on Sunday 1 October, 1pm-5pm, allowing visitors to explore the stunning landscape and gardens in glorious early autumn colours, with a proportion of the proceeds going to the charity.

The gardens have a long, interesting history. Ralph, the first Duke of Montagu (1638-1709), was influential in the early stages of the creation of the gardens and landscape at Boughton based on his association with Versailles. 

John, 2nd Duke of Montagu (1690-1749) then picked up the baton and evolved the landscape into what can be seen today. At that time the landscape covered 100 acres, with water features, splendid vistas and tree lined avenues. Much of this has been restored and the estate is currently renovating the historic Star Pond.

Visitors can enjoy light refreshments in the 18th century stable block and peruse the gift shop’s wide variety of crafts, food, jewellery, books and more. The tearoom will also be open for tea and cakes.

Tickets cost £6 for adults and £3 for children. Booking is essential at
