COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Following the Government’s most recent announcement that ticketed outdoor attractions may now open, we are delighted to confirm that we will reopen the grounds and car park from Wed 3 June.

To ensure we operate safely and responsibly, protecting visitors and staff, we are limiting numbers of visitors each day and will require everyone to pre-book, including National Trust members and local resident pass holders.

The Treaterie will be open for takeaway snacks and drinks on your visit. For now, the House, exhibitions, wine cellars, woodland playground, shop, Manor restaurant, Stables café, Woodland café and food-to-go outlets must remain closed.

Your visit to Waddesdon will be slightly different from usual, as there are a few things we need you to do differently when visiting to help us to stay open safely. Please read the following about how we are currently operating and what to expect on your visit. Important information>

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to Waddesdon.

Waddesdon’s estate
For residents of Waddesdon wanting to walk, while we want to offer an opportunity to get outdoors in beautiful surroundings, we politely ask you to please remember Waddesdon is a private estate and a working farm and access to the land is via the public rights of way. We welcome all walking visitors to enjoy the beautiful countryside in a safe and responsible way by sticking to the marked footpaths and keeping dogs on a short lead.
