Important update - Christmas at Waddesdon.
All tickets Sold Out for Sat 7 Dec 2019. Please only make the journey if you have pre-booked tickets.

Due to our very wet autumn some parking areas are too muddy to use, so over Christmas weekends we are having to limit the number of cars. For remaining Christmas weekends, ALL visitors will need to book their Grounds tickets in advance. This includes National Trust members - who can book for free online.

Whenever you come this Christmas, please wear suitable sturdy and waterproof footwear as there are some unavoidably muddy areas.

Don your jet pack and become an astronaut at Waddesdon!

Join Captain Mimi in an adventure across the skys, as you take on a space-themed orienteering course around the Waddesdon grounds. Pick up a map, and you’ll be exploring the stars in no time!

We are teaming up with the Thames Valley Orienteering Club for a week of muddy adventure. There will be three different routes of varying lengths (from 1km up to 2km) to choose from.

See if you can complete the challenge and collect a medal for each course as you orienteer around the Waddesdon grounds.

£3 per route. Pay on the day. Fancy dress is strongly encouraged.
