Did you know that Buckinghamshire is blessed with more National Trust properties than any other county in England? From impressive stately homes and gardens to more modest natural woods, Buckinghamshire is the perfect backdrop for long walks and tours. So why not spend some time exploring one – or two - or all of them!
Well worth a visit is Cliveden in Taplow which overlooks the Thames and has far reaching views of beautifully formal grounds. Another must-see is the magnificent Waddesdon Manor, a French Renaissance chateau which was originally built to display Ferdinand de Rothschild’s outstanding collection of treasures. Defined as the finest outdoor work of art in Europe, Stowe is another timeless landscape which cannot be missed, and Hughenden offers a vivid insight into the charismatic personality and colourful private life of the most unlikely Victorian Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli, who lived here from 1848 to 1881. Hartwell House, another National Trust property, is also one of Buckinghamshire’s most celebrated country house hotels and includes a two AA rosette award-winning restaurant.
