Plan your visit

Your visit to Waddesdon will be slightly different from usual. Takeaway food and drinks are available at the Stables and Woodland Cafe, and the toilets, the Aviary, Woodland Playground and shop are open. From Wed 16 Sept 2020 we are offering a free, short, ground-floor route to give visitors a chance to see inside the Manor for the first time this year. Entry is free with pre-booked grounds tickets and will be offered on a first come basis between 11am-3.30pm. The wine cellars remain closed. A tiny dedicated team of gardeners (without our volunteers) and have not been able to plant our usual summer bedding displays. Since March they have focused on general maintenance and keeping the trees healthy, so the formal gardens are not as manicured as they’d usually be. Shuttle buses are running between the car park, Manor and Stables. As there are strict capacity limits, bus tickets must be purchased in advance with grounds admission. Visitors are reminded that the law now stipulates that visitors may only visit or interact in a group of up to six people (unless visiting in a household or support bubble which is larger than 6). Please do not make arrangements to meet others at Waddesdon which will exceed this new 'Rule of 6'.
