A magnificent house and grounds in the style of a 16th-century French château.
Waddesdon's grounds and gardens have reopened for visitors to enjoy, Wednesday - Sunday. To adhere to essential social distancing guidelines and to ensure we operate responsibly there are special measures in place to keep staff and visitors safe. If you would like to visit, tickets must be pre-booked in advance.
As well as the gardens, the Nick Knight: Roses from my Garden exhibition in the Coach House gallery, Woodland Playground, Manor shop, Treaterie and coffee bar are also open to enjoy responsibly.
We are now offering our shuttle buses between the car park, Manor and Stables. Unfortunately, with strict capacity limits there will not be space for every visitor on the buses, so bus tickets must be purchased in advance with grounds admission.
For the time being, the House and wine cellars are not currently open. This may change depending on government guidelines, so for the latest information and updates check our website>

Opened to the public in 1957, Waddesdon Manor is managed by The Rothschild Foundation, a family charitable trust, on behalf of the National Trust. So whether you want to soak up the culture, join one of our events or simply take some time out. We can help you plan your perfect day.
Over a century ago, the House and setting were created to delight and surprise the small circle of Baron Ferdinand's friends. Today, more than 350,000 visitors a year come to appreciate the exceptional architecture, art collections and Gardens.
We also have seasonal exhibitions in the House, each highlighting certain aspects of the collection or loans we have acquired.
More than 10,000 bottles of wine, are stored in the vaults, documenting over 150 years of the Rothschild family’s ownership of two of the most famous Bordeaux vineyards: Château Lafite Rothschild and Château Mouton Rothschild.
The Wine Cellars also play host to our wine-tasting events and there is a daily talk with a guide at 11.30am and 2pm.
