Planning your visit

For the safety of visitors, staff, and volunteers we continue to manage numbers on site. All visitors, including National Trust members, must book a day and arrival time for Christmas Grounds admission. You must arrive within your hourly arrival time slot on the day of your visit.

Please note: the House will not be open this Christmas.

Your ongoing support buying refreshments on site means a lot to us as a charity. All profits go towards the upkeep of Waddesdon for future generations.
