Groups at Christmas
Christmas is always a special time of year at Waddesdon and the perfect place to bring your group. In 2019 we celebrate Christmas music with beautiful decorations, carols and festive songs to accompany your house visit. Outside we continue with our winter light theme in the gardens and a festive light installation meanders through the Coach House at the Stables.
We’re delighted to announce we have won ‘Best Christmas Experience’ at the Group Leisure & Travel Awards 2019.
Bring your group and share a festive day out gazing at the decorated house themed around Waddesdon’s connection to the world of music with a festive twist. From traditional Christmas carols to Christmas hits. Our hugely popular Christmas Fair will once again be held on the North Front. With over 80 local and independent artisan producers, indulge in celebratory foods and shop for gifts.

Umissable Christmas highlights
This year we celebrate the history of Christmas music. You’ll find beautiful themed decorations and trees sparkling with lights, while carols and festive songs play in the rooms.
The whole family will enjoy following our illuminated light trail leading you around the Aviary garden. See trees and bushes lit up with a rainbow of colours. Mirror balls and wine bottles lit from within hang from branches and lights dance to the melody of music as you walk by.
Trees, foliage and bushes are lit with colour as you make your way down to the Stables. Inside the Coach House be dazzled by an overhead indoor lighting display and then head outside for the perfect photo opportunity inside two giant Christmas baubles.
We know that most groups want to eat together and to ensure this is possible we offer a range of advance booking options for groups in our atmospheric Manor Restaurant.
You’ll find an exclusive range of bespoke jewellery, homeware, scarves, bags, and more which have all been inspired from objects in our collection.
