As twilight falls see the gardens sparkle brightly with spectacular light displays bringing our extraordinary landscape to life, in partnership with Luminism.
For the first time ever, see the Parterre illuminated by a dazzling light show, highlighting the geometric shapes of the bedding.
In celebration of the completion of the Illuminated River project, initiated and supported by the Rothschild Foundation, Waddesdon is mounting an exhibition of work by the artist of the project, Leo Villareal alongside a display showing how this long-term art installation is transforming the Thames at night with an orchestrated series of light works that span nine bridges in central London. Leo Villareal created subtly moving sequences of LED light to unify the Thames bridges making them into the longest piece of public art in the world, drawing inspiration from the spirit and history of the river and from the architectural and engineering heritage of its bridges.
On this trail, walk down Miss Alice’s Drive, from the Woodland Café to the Stables to see a display of lanterns and boats decorated by local schoolchildren on a theme of journeys, and our annual schools lightbox competition.
