A Waddesdon Christmas, through a blogger's eyes

With mince pies and mulled wine in full flow, we invited some bloggers to Waddesdon to provide an honest insight into all that we have to offer this Christmas.

Little Ankle Biters
“I have to say Waddesdon have out done themselves this year. The projection and light displays are truly incredible.”

The Mummysphere
“Waddesdon Manor has treats in store, from carnival-themed displays to winter light trails and illuminations. Expect theatre, sparkle and twinkling lights…”

“I had been fantasizing about hopping over to Bavaria and seeing all the Christmas markets in medieval villages in the snow. But if, like me, you’re a little bit broke due to fatal combination of an unfortunate online shopping habit and moving into an unfurnished flat, there is a more affordable way to get your fairy tale Christmas kick a little closer to home. Go check out Waddesdon Manor.”

Hot Pink Wellingtons
“I’m so glad we made it to Waddesdon Manor – I don’t think we could have found a more beautiful time of year to visit!”

Girl Gone London
“From a Christmas Fair to light trails, cafes selling festive food to a projection show timed with music, all of my Christmas dreams finally came true… Waddesdon Manor Christmas is just what the whole family needs to get into the holiday spirit together.”

“Waddesdon Manor is one of those houses that always takes your breath away. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve seen the house over the years, in all seasons, it’s just stunning. Seeing it lit up shows it off in another way.”
