Spotlight on: Monkeys

Wed 5 Aug 2020


Free with house and grounds admission
Meet at the Main Door

Monkeys were a source of much amusement in the 18th century – people kept them as pets but also imagined them as miniature humans, who could behave in outrageous ways.

Join curator Mia Jackson to explore how this fascination is reflected in the collections at Waddesdon.

Meet at the Main Door.

Please note: The tour finishes and the House closes at 4pm.  We recommend you book your House timed tickets for 2pm or earlier in order to see other rooms in the House before this talk.
