To celebrate the return of Paddington to the big screen this winter, we have created a limited-edition Paddington Afternoon Tea for your marmalade loving cubs (or kids) to enjoy this Christmas.
During the winter months from the end of October to the end of March (depending on the weather) we wrap all our statues against the frost. So don’t be surprised to see ghostly looking shapes in the grounds during your visit.
If you’re looking for the perfect venue for a Christmas party with a difference, nothing can match the unique atmosphere of Christmas at Waddesdon, with both the Dairy and Five Arrows Hotel offering Christmas party packages.
