Christmas at Waddesdon

This Christmas at Waddesdon, be spirited away to a magical wonderland as classic tales come to life with new decorations in the house and dazzling new light displays outside enchant and delight.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

This year the Manor transforms into a fantastical and festive wonderland with new, themed displays in the house and brand-new, 4D light projections on the Manor façade inspired by three classic tales. Go on a magical adventure as you enter the wondrous world of Alice in Wonderland, find the Snow Queen’s kingdom and fly with Peter Pan to Neverland. Find sparkling installations, immersive soundscapes and mesmerising light displays as you explore some of the Manor's grandest rooms.

Wander the Christmas Fair (until 17 December) and soak up the sights, sounds and smells of the festive season with hand-selected stalls all housed in charming wooden chalets, surrounded by twinkling trees. Food lovers can also delight in our Food Village offering a fabulous selection of takeaway food and drink to enjoy whilst exploring the grounds.

As twilight falls and music fills the air, the yuletide magic continues as the Manor's fairy-tale façade comes to life with spellbinding animated projections, brand new for 2023 and walk the new light trail through the gardens with more interactive elements than ever before, bringing the extraordinary landscape to life.

Have yourself an even merrier little Christmas by booking a festive afternoon tea in the Manor Restaurant!

Christmas at Waddesdon runs 22 Nov – 1 Jan. Booking essential. Please note a special admission charge applies to all visitors, including National Trust members.
