Redesigned in 1862 in an Italianate style, the formal gardens feature terraces, perfect lawns, classical statuary and a parterre full of vibrant colour. The walled garden and pleasure grounds offer a more relaxed space, ideal for play and picnics.
Discover Waddesdon's gardens in full bloom and scent this summer. See the beautiful rose garden in bloom, the carpet bedding design and our 3D birds. There's also fantastic art in the gardens to marvel at.
The Chiltern Hills are rich in wildlife, ranging from red kites to Duke of Burgundy butterlies. Habitats include endangered chalk grassland, farmland and many acres of woodlands. Find out more about our wildlife and how we manage the environment at National Trust Chiltern Countryside sites.
Summer's here at last. Why not play in the dappled shade of Cliveden's woodland, visit The Vyne or picnic on the chalk grassland of Maidenhead and Cookham Commons. There are lots of places to explore on a walk around Berkshire and the Thames Valley.
