All Grounds (& House) tickets are SOLD OUT for today, Sunday 8 Dec. Please only make a journey to Waddesdon if you have pre-booked tickets. Due wet weather some parking areas are too muddy to use and it is taking longer to enter the site than usual so we are limiting the number of cars.
There is limited availability for remaining Christmas weekends, ALL visitors will need to book Grounds tickets in advance for weekends. This includes National Trust members - who can book for free online.
Whenever you come this Christmas, please wear suitable sturdy and waterproof footwear as there are some unavoidably muddy areas.
