Badminton House is a large country house and Grade I Listed Building in Badminton, Gloucestershire, England, and has been the principal seat of the Dukes of Beaufort since the late 17th century, when the family moved from Raglan Castle, which had been ruined in the English Civil War.
The beautiful gardens are usually only open once a year to the general public but after the success of our low-key openings in 2020 we are pleased to announce we will be operating three open days throughout 2021, with the dates and ticket sales coming soon.
The Duke of Beaufort, an aristocrat who owned large parts of land in Wales, has died leaving behind a £315 million fortune.
The Somersets are descended from John of Gaunt, and the dukedom of Beaufort was created by Charles II in 1682, being granted to Sir Thomas’ great nephew, Henry Somerset, 3rd Marquess of Worcester in reward for his service to the Royalists in the Civil War.
The Dukes of Beaufort hold the title of Lord of Gower and Kilvey and still own significant estates in eastern Gower. The estate formerly consisted of lands in the parishes of Bishopston, Ilston, Llandeilo Talybont, Llangyfelach, Llanrhidian, Llansamlet, Loughor, Oystermouth, Penmaen, Pennard and Swansea.
