Reasons for trip

Woburn Abbey Deer Park is well worth a visit and costs £4.50 per adult. under 5`s get free entry and senior concessions. We spent a happy few hours here yesterday until our fingers were so cold clicking cameras we thought it was time to leave. You can drive around some of the 30,000 acre park or leave the car in the car park and walk. We did a bit of both and were very lucky as few other people were in the park so the deer were not hiding in far corners of the estate. I managed to photo a stag as he herded his females across the fields. If you go to the park do check opening and closing times. The park seems to be open from 10 am in winter but the cafe is only open Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sunday until March. We would have taken a flask if we had checked this first. A visit into the Abbey gardens is included in the price but we didn`t go in as we were pretty cold. I am sure they are lovely the lady in the ticket office said spring is a stunning time to visit. Do check which entrance you go in as we found it a little confusing and went in the Safari Park entrance. It could certainly do with better signing around Woburn.
