Plan your visit

Your visit to Waddesdon will be slightly different from usual.

Takeaway food and drinks are available at the Stables, and the toilets, the Aviary and shop are open. The playground, wine cellars and house remain closed due to government restrictions.

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.

Roses from my Garden - new exhibition in the Coach House Gallery from 4 July  

Seldom exhibited or published, this body of work is inspired by Nick Knight’s fascination with nature in general, and more specifically with the rose as an enduring symbol of beauty.

What appears at first glance to be a historical approach to flower photography is, upon closer inspection, at the very cutting edge of imaging technology. The resulting images are no longer photographs, but rather, digital representations of photographs.

Open 11.00am-5.00pm, Wednesday-Sunday, 4 July - 25 October 2020. Exhibition admission is included free with all Waddesdon grounds tickets. All visitors must pre-book tickets online. Admission free for National Trust, Art Fund and RHS members and under-5s.
