Our offering for foodies visiting Badminton each year just grows and grows with many places and ways to eat for all tastes and budgets.
Event Director Hugh Thomas explains why having a huge range of food on offer is so important: “With access to the beautiful countryside as well as a shopping village and glamping or camping opportunities, we realise Badminton offers a similar experience to festivals and family friendly events, so we like to make sure we keep up in in terms of food and drink too.”
Below is an overview of places to eat at Badminton Horse Trials, Wednesday 1st – Sunday 5th May 2019.
