Celebrations of Life at Shuttleworth

Losing your loved one can be a difficult time and planning a celebration of life can be overwhelming, but we are here to provide an excellent range of services and our venue can be tailored to suit your individual needs.

Shuttleworth, in the heart of rural Bedfordshire, is home to the world famous Shuttleworth Collection, the Swiss Garden and the Shuttleworth House. All our venues sit within the beautiful historic parkland of Old Warden Park. We are able to offer a range of packages from a simple scattering of ashes to large wake celebrations.

At Shuttleworth House, you have the choice of many grand and elegant rooms if you would like a traditional affair. For garden lovers looking for a more intimate offering, we have The Garden Room, nestled in its own private courtyard within the Swiss Garden. For aviation enthusiasts, the Discovery Hub overlooking the engineering workshop with great access to the runway is just perfect.

While on-site we encourage guests to experience all Shuttleworth has to offer. Explore 60 acres of COVID-secure Shuttleworth attractions, including the Shuttleworth Collection, historic Lakeside Parkland, the beautiful Swiss Garden, tranquil strolls on either the Shrubbery or Woodland Walk and a wonderful outdoor children’s playground.

With great care and attention, our staff will support you and your guests from start to finish. The Runway Café catering team have put together some lovely but simple packages to cater to both small and large celebrations.

Shuttleworth can also accommodate airfield ashes scattering, where friends and family can watch the ashes of their loved ones scattered by air from one of the Shuttleworth Collection’s aircraft. Another option is to have a walk-on scattering of ashes on the Shuttleworth runway.
