Waddesdon Manor

Please accept our apologies for wrongly cancelling some January Grounds tickets. All ticket bookings for 12, 1 & 2pm admission timeslots are still valid. If you have paid for your tickets, you will be contacted by SeeTickets individually. We apologise for this human error made as we tried to respond to lockdown changes. It is being resolved as quickly as we can.

Grounds visits in January

Waddesdon will open Wed-Sun for daytime local outdoor exercise only. Advance booking essential.

Following the latest lockdown regulations we are amending our opening hours from 6 January and will now be open from 10am-4pm (last admission 2pm). This is to provide local people with an opportunity to exercise in the fresh air on their own, with their household/bubble or with one person from another household.

Safety is our priority, please respect other visitors by maintaining social distance and do not arrange to meet other people at Waddesdon. Visitor numbers are reduced and all visitors, including National Trust members who have free admission, need to book an arrival time slot to manage numbers on site.

Book tickets

Takeaway food and drink will be available, but no seating may be provided near these outlets. Toilets will be open. However, the House, Aviary, indoor restaurant and cafe, cellars and shop will be closed in line with Government guidance.

Unfortunately, the light trails and interactive features we had hoped to keep open, must now close.

Coronavirus information>

We will now be closed from dusk, so those who had booked for a late afternoon visit this January (3pm, 4pm or 5pm timeslots), will have their tickets automatically cancelled and refunded, and will receive an email about this from SeeTickets. Thank you for your support and patience.
