Gardens

Designed for Baron Ferdinand's guests, Waddesdon's gardens are now enjoyed by all visitors for their beauty and calm.

Glimpse the gardens on film

The gardens were the vision of Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, who created the Manor at the end of the 19th century. What began as a bare hill in 1874, is now an exceptional example of Victorian horticulture including formal gardens, trees and walks.
