Spend the evening with us and get into the seasonal spirit as you enjoy our extraordinary light displays and browse the Christmas Fair before enjoying a five-course dinner paired with sumptuous wines created by our talented chefs.
Back by popular demand, Waddesdon invites you to a festive feast. From 6pm soak up the sights, sounds and smells of Christmas with our dazzling new light displays and Christmas market. At 7pm our hospitality team will greet you with Champagne and canapés at our newly refurbished wine cellars. From there you will be escorted to the Manor restaurant where our chefs and wine team have carefully curated a five course food and wine festive feast. You will be guided through some of the most esteemed Rothschild wines as well as finishing with a Cheeseboard & Port (because Christmas would be incomplete without a glass of Port!).
This will be our most impressive evening dinner event to date, so book early to avoid any disappointment!
