What's On


Changes to events due to coronavirus


Most events have had to be cancelled. Our box office team is contacting those who have booked in order to issue refunds, please be patient as this may take while.

Following the Government’s most recent announcement that ticketed outdoor attractions may now open, we are delighted to confirm the following areas are open:

Grounds, gardens, Aviary, Woodland Playground, Treaterie, Coffee Bar, shops and the free exhibition exhibition Roses from my Garden in the Coach House Gallery at the Stables.

To ensure we operate safely and responsibly, protecting visitors and staff, we are limiting visitor numbers each day and will require everyone to pre-book, including National Trust members and local resident pass holders.

Your visit to Waddesdon will be slightly different from usual, as there are a few things we need you to do differently when visiting to help us to stay open safely. Please read the following about how we are currently operating and what to expect on your visit. Important information>

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to Waddesdon.


Our box office team are already busy contacting those who have booked events arranging refunds etc. We will be assessing the situation week-by-week and arranging refunds for bookings as closure continues.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding, and we wish you and your loved ones all the best.
