5 Jan – 24 Mar 2019, Sat-Sun
Forget the winter blues by getting out and enjoying nature.
This January to March explore the gardens that are wonderful at this time of year, with early spring-flowering snowdrops and winter aconities, winter shrubs and unusual views before the trees come into leaf. It’s a perfect time to be inspired and connect with nature, spend time with friends and family or cosy up with a delicious hot chocolate.
The House is currently closed for conservation, but will re-open again on Wed 27 March.
There’s never been a better time to explore the grounds and get healthy. Walk one of the five mapped routes to discover highlights of the season in the gardens and lesser known areas in the wider estate. You can bring your dog along for all five walks. It’s time to get out and soak up views of Aylesbury Vale, contemporary architecture and winter plants.
A sensory map and multi-sensory adventure backpacks will offer imaginative experiences of the gardens, unlocking Waddesdon’s landscapes and corners of the grounds that might not previously have been explored. Listen carefully to the birds sing in the Aviary, feel the texture of tree bark and take note of the dappled light and shade when walking down Miss Alice’s Driv.
