See behind the scenes of Waddesdon Manor

Come and experience and exclusive behind the scenes tour with an opportunity to explore rooms where the servants lived and worked, and find out how we use these areas of the house today.

Join us at 10:30am for coffee in the Manor Restaurant, with the tour starting at 11am.

During this 60-minute tour, be led by a knowledgeable Waddesdon guide and experience a behind-the-scenes look at the rooms in the house. You will also have the opportunity to explore the collection stores, treasury and wine cellars and learn about the conservation techniques used to care for the collection and view the academic apartments, never normally open to the public.

A Rothschild Treasury is located on the top floor of the Manor via stairs and the Wine Cellars entrance is accessed via steep stairs.

A member of staff will go with you in a lift to the second floor. You will then need to be able to transfer yourself to a chairlift, and back again. If you require an alternative access route, please email enquiries@waddesdon.org.uk at least 48 hours in advance of your visit.
