The political freedoms that began with the Magna Carta were supported by the Russell family over the centuries. They were a prominent Whig family who passionately believed in civil liberties. On a special trail through Woburn Abbey, explore their contributions to the many freedoms we enjoy today.

Learn how William, Lord Russel joined the Rye House Plot in 1683 against the absolute monarchy of the Stuarts, he was arrested and, despite numerous pleas he was beheaded for treason. When William of Orange arrived in 1688 as William III, he pronounced the trial illegal and the family was rewarded with a Dukedom. You can view this royal document at the Abbey.

Guided tours will take place 11:00 1:00 and 2:00 pm on the 14th.
Go to the Duchesses Tea Room for a LiberTea when you finish.
