Last Sunday we headed back to Woburn Abbey Gardens, in Bedfordshire which is well signed from both the A5 and the M1.
The gardens are really great for exploring as there are lots of different areas including a pond, grotto, aviary, green house, maze and Chinese temple among other things.
The gardens are lovely themselves but what makes them even better is that to get to them you have to take a drive through Woburn's deer park which is home to over 3000 deer which can be easily seen as you pass through.
This time when we visited they had a special trail on which is apparently on for the whole summer holidays. It was themed on the Olympics and you had to find different trophy signs with the names of Olympic sports dotted around the ground and if you found them all you got a gold chocolate medal.
There were also little challenges as you went round like how long you could hula hoop or skip for etc. In the centre of the gardens they had set up a big gazebo set up with giant jenga and connect four, skittles, cricket, bean bags, croquet and bowls which you could try.
Woburn is well worth a visit at any time but this made it even more fun !
