Winter Light at Waddesdon
Following the Government announcement on 4 Jan 2021, the light trails and interactive features we had hoped to keep open throughout January, must now unfortunately close.
Now in Tier 4, Christmas at Waddesdon, Winter Light evenings and dinners in January have been cancelled. Those with booked tickets will be contacted by SeeTickets about their refunds in the next few days. Thank you for your support and patience.
We will be opening Waddesdon’s Grounds to give you an opportunity for local exercise in the fresh air from 6 January.
To add a touch of sparkle to your visit, during January visitors may also enjoy the When You Wish Upon A Star trail down Miss Alice’s Drive, and the Giant Pea-light Baubles at the Stables throughout the day. From dusk, our Winter Light trail and Manor façade illuminations will brighten up your visit. There are no separate timed admissions for the Winter Light trail – please respect other visitors by maintaining social distance.
The Winter Light trail will transform the Pleasure Grounds with dramatic colour and playful installations. Stroll under the stars beneath magically illuminated tree canopies transformed by moving light. See the Manor's facade bathed in light set to music.
As the sun goes down, watch the spectacle of the Manor's facade illuminated with dancing lights set to sequenced music.
Winter Light trail
As twilight falls, follow the Winter Light trail around the Pleasure Grounds and see trees and shrubs lit up in a rainbow of colours and different installations throughout the walk.
Giant baubles at the Stables
Step inside giant twinkling LED baubles and capture a special festive moment. The perfect photo oppotunity to share and remember.
When you wish upon a star trail
Walk down Miss Alice's Drive, from the Woodland Cafe to the Stables to see a display of lanterns and stars decorated by local schoolchildren on a theme of hope, and our annual schools lightbox competition.
