About The Woburn Abbey Estate has been the home of the Dukes of Bedford for over 300 years. Today the estate is the home for the 15th Duke and his family. In total, there are 3,000 acres of land that accommodate nine different species of deer that can roam free. The Sculpture Gallery was originally built for the fifth Duke Of Bedford as an orangery. Today it still has some of the original sculptures including a Roman urn called The ‘Lante Vase’.
