Walking routes

There is so much to explore at Waddesdon so we have outlined four different walks taking in different aspects of the gardens or wider estate.

Bring your dog

You are more than welcome to bring your dog to join in on the adventures. Dogs are allowed anywhere in the grounds with the exception of the Aviary and Woodland Playground.

Spot snowdrops and daffodils

February is the perfect time to look out for snowdrops. You may also be lucky enough to catch the first of the spring daffodils!

Wander through the grounds and experience Waddesdon through your senses. Each stop on the trail engages a different sense. Touch the rough surface of the tree ferns and stop to listen to the birds sing in the Aviary
