This year we celebrate the weird and wonderful animals of Waddesdon. See an elephant parade inspired by an 18th-century musical automaton to a life-sized zebra and trees decked with birds and mythical beasts.

While Waddesdon’s main rooms are ‘put to bed’ for cleaning and conservation,  parts of the House are opened specially for Christmas, with decorations that celebrate the weird and wonderful animals of Waddesdon, from an elephant parade inspired by an 18th-century musical automaton to a life-sized zebra and trees decked with colourful birds and mythical beasts.

Pick up our free children’s trail at the entrance to the House.
