Waddesdon Manor Gardens

Steeped in history, each part of the Gardens tell a different story.

A bit about us

Grounds re-open

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>

 About the gardens

Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild created a garden of beauty and wonder in the late 19th century. Today, this magic lives on. The gardens are still renowned for their treasures and, with acres of landscaped grounds to explore, there are plenty of delights to discover and adventures to be had - at every twist and turn.

We've several walks suitable for most abilities - or just enjoy the scenery at your leisure. We've planted up our summer bedding scheme and with a little more sunshine, the colours will soon be vibrant and bright.

From tiny tots to young teens, children are free to jump, swing, climb, skip and play all day long. Our playground winds through the trees, making use of the natural environment to create a magical area. Little ones can play in safety at the bottom of the hill, with slides, swings and plenty of soft bark to land in. At the top of the hill is our bird's nest swing, giant green slide, zip wire and other popular equipment.

There is also a rare example of a working aviary housed in an historical structure, restored to its full beauty and stocked with colourful birds. A must-see on your visit to Waddesdon.
