Magnificent house and grounds in the style of a 16th-century French château.

waddesdon-manor-2Surrounded by views of Oxfordshire, the Chilterns Hills, the Vale of Aylesbury and just a train ride away from London.

Explore this French Renaissance-style château built by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild in 1874 to entertain the fashionable world and to house his collection of fine art. They’re continuing the tradition today of entertainment and hospitality with events celebrating food and wine, and opportunities for you to explore their history, collections and gardens through changing exhibitions and special interest days.

Step back in time in the Victorian style gardens, gaze at flamboyant colours on the parterre amid the ornate fountains and statuary. Unearth the rare and exotic birds housed in the roccoco style Aviary found in the heart of the gardens or be an adventurer in the woodland playground which winds through the trees. Make use of this wonderful natural environment and explore the trail around the gardens; hunt for bugs and spot wildlife along the woodland walk.
