- Booking essential
This year, a visit to Eythrope has special significance, as it is the centenary of its creator, Miss Alice de Rothschild.
Miss Alice was a passionate and knowledgeable horticulturalist, renowned for her perfectionism and innovation. The walled garden at Eythrope was and is a productive garden, which supplied vegetables, fruit, herbs and cut flowers for her household, friends and family. Today, produce is used in Waddesdon’s restaurants and hotel. A working garden on this scale is rare and Eythrope is legendary in the garden world for the excellence of gardening and as a haven for traditional techniques that might otherwise be lost.
Tickets include a light meal with savoury and sweet elements inspired by the seasonal produce from Eythrope and created by the Manor Restaurant’s in-house chefs. Once at the Manor, you can visit the gardens there, including a chance to see Waddesdon’s famous carpet bedding, and enjoy Alice’s Wonderlands, the centenary exhibition in the Coach House at the Stables.
While at Eythrope, purchase produce from the garden (please note we can only accept cash), and copies of Paradise and Plenty, Lady Mary Keen’s companion guide to the garden, photographed by Tom Hatton.
