Explore Waddesdon's gardens online
Discover the story of the gardens as well as special highlights with our online trails, blogs and films.
Dedicate a space at home to switching off
When the gardens are open we dedicate a particular area as a ‘Silent Space’ every day in order to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life.
In these unsettling times, we encourage you to find a space in your garden or in your home that feels peaceful and designate a time each day to enjoy a quiet moment of reflection.

Engage your senses
We created a sensory trail at Waddesdon, and while you cannot visit at the moment, we hope you can use this map as inspiration to connect with nature wherever you may be.
If you have an outdoor space then why not find things to look closely at, touch, smell and listen quietly to. Or if you have a window with a view try spotting flowers in the breeze, listening to birdsong or smelling the spring air.
The gardens story through our blog
The Archive holds many notes and letters relating to the gardens. These historic documents have inspired some of the planting schemes at Waddesdon today, including displays in the conservatory.
