Group Visits

Your group is welcome at Bowhill

Your group will love a visit to Bowhill House and Country Estate. We understand that every group is different, so we aim to make your visit as enjoyable as possible by providing facilities to suit your requirements.

We welcome groups for tours of the House all year round.  All tours must be pre-booked and include a one-hour guided tour of the House where you can learn about the wonderful art collection and Buccleuch family history.

We can also tailor your tour to include any of the following options for an additional charge:

  • Victorian Kitchen – learn about the inner workings of a real Victorian homes’ kitchen.
  • Costume Room. – Enjoy the treasures of a room rarely seen by members of the public, including the wedding dress of the Dowager Duchess.
  • Guided tour of the Gardens, Walled Gardens & Greenhouse, not usually open to the public.

*Please note a minimum charge applies outwith season opening times.
