Waddesdon Manor, and its estate set in the heart of the Buckinghamshire countryside, is built to entertain. It offers a unique selection of venues in a truly inspiring location, perfect for all kinds of corporate hire and private events.
Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild built Waddesdon between 1874 and 1885, as a weekend retreat to entertain friends and family and display his exceptional collection of art. Famous for his ‘Saturday to Monday’ parties, which served exceptional food and wine; guests included royalty, politicians and celebrated artistic and literary figures.
The Rothschild family remain devoted to Ferdinand’s vision, the tradition of legendary hospitality in a fabulous setting still thrives – a tradition we invite you and your colleagues to share. From banquets to intimate dinners and exclusive wine tastings, team-building activities and product launches, today Waddesdon hosts them all.
