Waddesdon Manor


The grounds, gardens, Aviary, woodland playground and Roses from my Garden free exhibition are now open. The house, wine cellars and restaurant remain closed.

Take away food is available from The Treaterie at the Stables, Woodland Café and Manor Courtyard Coffee Bar. The gift and wine shop, and toilets are open.

Please bring a face covering with you. Coverings must be worn on shuttle buses, in the shop and cafés and all indoor places where two-metre distancing is not possible.

To operate safely we are limiting visitor numbers and require everyone to pre-book their tickets, including National Trust members and children of all ages.

We are running our shuttle buses between the car park, Manor and Stables, however, with strict capacity limits there will not be space on the buses for every visitor. Bus tickets will be valid for all journeys made on the day and should be purchased in advance with grounds admission. Blue Badge holders and their carer, may book space on the bus for no additional charge.

We expect most visitors will continue to walk the woodchip path to reach the Manor, which takes about 20 minutes and has some steep sections.

Alternatively, a limited number of Premium Parking spaces at the top of the hill and may be booked when booking tickets.

Changes to your visit this summer

Those who know us well may be surprised to find our gardens look a little different at the moment. Please watch this short video about what to expect.

We’re making visitor and staff safety our top priority, so we’re asking visitors to be aware of not overcrowding one another on some of our narrow footpaths, in the woodland playground and the toilets.
